Why do I Cry When I watch this Video?

Well, fwiw, I got teary-eyed also. I guess it stirred up many emotions, mainly pride in that man's ability to be an ambassador (of a strange, dancing sort :) among so many nations. Many of the countries and people pictured are people that I do not know well and, in many ways, have been fearful of. Seeing this video kind of gave me that same feeling that I had watching the Berlin wall fall down, kind of burning desire for peace on earth that will not be realized this side of Heaven.

This young man, traveling the world (something I'd like to do) and sharing a bit of joy with its inhabitants brought a smile to my face.

Anyhow, that's what appealed to me about the video. Thanks for sharing it.

I think it is the JOY he is sharing. So often we see the BAD news, this is just about sharing the joy of dancing- funny dancing :)

Everyone else I know has felt the same way- admittedly we are all homeschooling mothers... :D

I didn't cry, but it definitely made me feel warm and joyful. Good clean fun shared by many. It's so nice to that circulating around the web. I found myself buying a pack of Stride gum yesterday just to support this kind of thing. (btw it was really good gum.)

I discovered Stride gum a few months ago, and it is great--especially for road trips, LOL! I'm glad Matt's sponsor is a good product.
