  • It's very touching indeed. However, could have been more subtle had the direct and blunt alluding to what we do for our children been avoided. There are ways to drive home the point even without making it look as if we did something extra-ordinary.
    Nevertheless, an impressive show!

  • Reviewed and agree partially. we teach our children the lessons of arrogance, hatred, moneymindedness, the so called selfregarding sentiment...we prepare them to fight..to crush others in order to win. do we ever allow them to see, feel and live life as it is...anyway this vedieo was hitting somewhere inside.
