  1. Very powerful. The understatement of the text at the beginning and middle leads very effectively to the disturbing impact of the statistics at the end.

    BTW, whose version of the song is this? It's a wonderful choice for the visuals. I really liked that the pacing of the visuals gave me time to really look at each one.

  2. Hey Vicki, that's Nina Simone, "Misunderstood," in the background. I played her original. Thanks for the comment!

  4. Wow! Mary did an amazing job with her video essay. The music choice was perfect it really set the mood. The photos really left me speechless. I felt the sadness and despair in the photos. Also, the points she pointed out at the end of the video were on point!

  5. This was powerful. All stylistic choices were perfect, really allowed me to meditate on one simple, sad truth. Showed this to youth I work with in Toronto - you got their attention and the discussion was really thoughtful.
