    Hey All,

    First off, Happy Holidays!!! Just thought I would share a link of a video I found on the New York Times website. I thought it was kinda funny and moving at the same time... enjoy!

    This is kinda moving in a way, in this season of giving. Thanks for sharing.

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.

    What are they going to do the next year when they received 10 times as many letters?

    Return to sender?

    "The letters need to go somewhere"

    I suggest the bin, the fire or forward to the North Pole. It´s KINDA nice, but frankly you wouldn´t find me doing it.

    That's a good idea, I would have never thought of doing that. That makes me want to take up a letter next year or start something in PHX.

    That's really nice. also, I saw a story like this on 30 Rock - it it common in the US to buy presents for strangers at Christmas like this?

    I think this is great in a couple of ways....

    I think this speaks to the indomitable human spirit that wants to do something good in the world. Regardless of what they'll do next year or what the "best" thing to have done was, these guys wanted to do something to make the world a better place. It's not about what couldn't be done or wasn't done; it's about what they did do. Any of us can only do so much, but it's enough.

    I also think it's great that this video clearly portrayed a gay couple and didn't mention anything having to do with gay and that these guys were just pictured as normal of a couple as can be. Way to go to the producers from simply and elegantly understating this angle. Would that all depictions of a gay couple in the future were just as normal as any other couple.

    This video touched my heart because of the inspiration of good and the respect shown to two men trying to do some good at Christmas.

    OK, lol, I'm better now. Just look at those typos in my last post. Yeesh.

    Those men are Fairy Godfathers, whether they know it or not, they are.

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    It's a good thing there are such generous people in the world...to balance out those of us who'd do no such thing.

    Beautiful. I'm glad I spent the time watching that video. I'd gladly take a few of those letters and fulfill them.
