Imagine?



Imagine?

What can I say? Many of us complain about the little things in life. Perhaps, we shouldn't.

  1. OMG, imagine indeed....the song is naturally beautiful- and it totally enhances the singer...Lennon would be proud... Beautiful brothers indeed and kudos to their mother. My son's issue doesn't compare.

  2. KBF: I read you. I'm not a big complainer, but I think after seeing this, I'm done complaining about anything at all.

  4. Yes, indeed. We all get miffed at things occasionally and while it's healthy to let out stress, most of our lives are nothing compared to this.
    I think the biggest message I take from this is what a mother's love can do for any child. I was so glad to see that for this man and his brother, and how loving the whole family was really.

  5. I'm sitting here with tears streaming down my face! I saw kids like him when I volunteered at the Orphanage in Thailand (Did it for two years)...we were paired with a particular child and worked with them on their development to make the process of them adapting to adoption easier. We were sat outside one afternoon playing with the kids when a guy came over to talk to us. It turned out he had been adopted from that orphanage and had wanted to see where he had come from...he thanked us for what we were doing...it seemed like such a small thing to do...you know? give a little of your time...but it really made a difference.

    When my little one was adopted she went to her new parents with a photo album that I had made. I recorded the day she took her first steps, painted her feet and made prints of them and took regular photos so that both she and her family had a record of her early years. Anyone can be a Mother...but it takes love and hard work to be a Mum. That woman in the film was incredible and her son was a credit to her!

  6. Yes, we need to see images like these to realize how lucky most of us are when we complain about insignificant things. I knew already this images, they were shown on TV in my country, but I thank you very much for sharing them.

  9. Well, I have teared up reading blogs, but this is the first time I cried so hard I got a headache. This touched me on so many levels. As another adoptive parent, I "imagine" it was special to you, too, for that reason among many others. Thank you so much for sharing this. What a profile in courage...and talent!

  10. Well, I have to agree with all of you. As an adoptive parent, I have first-hand experience with a child rejected and unprotected by her own culture. We can provide all the love and support a caring parent can muster up, but in the end, it takes courage for such individuals to stand out from the crowd. This young man should make us all proud.

  13. Can one be at a loss for words? Such a very deep and moving piece....and again I feel songs are so important on so many levels....

  14. Karen: I think I have the words, but they cannot equal the impact of the video. I agree. Songs reach us at many levels.
