Lost Generation

This is an amazing video. It's short, only 1:44 minutes (and seconds).

From the email that it was sent to me:

Interesting how this works! Make sure your speakers are turned on
A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite. This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant! Make sure you read as well as listen...forward and backward. This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old. The contest was titled "u @ 50" by AARP. This video won second place . When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause. So simple and yet so brilliant. Take a minute and watch it.

Okay, this video was the perfect way for me to start this week, especially as today is the 5th anniversary of U tube!...not to mention that eighth graders are graduating this week, and highshool seniors are graduating next week. I am so intrigued by the artistry and poetry of the palindrome itself. This is a keeper. Thanks!
