Watch this video. It'll make your day. (Full disclosure: I cried.)

Seriously, I did tear up. And it was worse because I've just rolled in several more rejection letters, so by halfway through this, I was set to blubber hopelessly. Then by the end, I was sniffling with hope. :)

Saw it on Beth Revis' blog 5 mins ago. Amazing and inspiring. Yay Publishing!

What I find amazing is that the concept actually originated with a paid political ad for some guy running for a seat in ... Argentina, I think, several years ago. And then somebody did an amazing entry based on that for the AARP (Lost Generation) and won second place or something. I don't understand why it didn't win first.

It's a tremendous piece of communication. That was a lovely redo for publishing. Brilliant.

Nicely done. I'm in an optimistic mood today . . . for once.

Fabulous! I cried. Still sniffing....
Love it when clever people with time on their hands use their powers for good!

That was rather cool and clever. I'm going to have to pass the link on to my friends who don't read this blog. Wow.
