      You said it all, so powerfully, in so few words.

      Loved it.

      The video was magnificent. I feel sorry for the kids. What have they got to listen too?

      Maybe that is why they still listen to the our generations music.

      Voted up, beautiful and interesting. Thank you for these few powerful words.
