God Of Second Chances


The last few days got me really thinking about memories… most of my fondest ones come from Christmas. When I think of Christmas, I immediately think of the year my Dad came home to and told my brother and I; Christmas was going to be different that year. Think we both we both were hoping for a the Atari 2600 and pong; links are included if you don’t know what those things are. What my Dad explained to us was he felt he needed to bring happiness to someone’s life at Christmas. We gave everything we had to a family that was poor and about to celebrate there last Christmas with there daughter, who had cancer.  We as a family put them up in a hotel for two weeks, got them presents, provided at least three Christmas dinners, and gave them some wonderful memories.  It was one of the greatest traditions we have continued to this day, trying to make a difference in someone’s life at Christmas.

So when my friend @loswhit (Carlos Whittaker) point out what happened during his video shoot for his EPK; it made me think about how a simple gesture or song can make a difference in someone’s life.  Here is a cut of the behind the scenes of what happened during the shoot… it has to be one of the coolest things i’ve seen in a while… so moving
