    It's especially cute how the father distances himself from the older, attention-starved child to show his favoritism for the younger. He practically pushes the older kid out of the scene. He moves his arm away when the kid touches him. Setting up your kids for a lifetime of sibling rivalry and psychotherapy is always adorable and makes for great home movies.

    I know you're being sarcastic but the video is about the pureness of the child, not about how they are gonna become.

    Parents may be impartial for some time, and that cannot be blamed, that was how i took away all the attention from my sister for being the smaller child. But we don't hate each others just because of that, indeed we love each others damn very much, because we are connected by the blood.

    It seems to be hard for people to smile a little nowadays, they all go bitter because they have been living in the mad mad world for so long.

    Your English is excellent but for future reference it would be that being "partial" cannot be blamed, as there would be no blame whatsoever for being impartial. Still, being partial can be blamed, not to hold a grudge but to understand from whence conflict arises and how it may affect not just how we reflect upon our pasts but also the current & future intra- & interpersonal relationships of our lives.

    As awfully cute as it is for you to have written each others which does seem--however oddly to this American ear--more logically correct, the convention is to write "each other" in the singular even though it refers to the plural, I don't know but perhaps in recognition of the individuals together.

    Like all of art and much of perception, the video is about not just what might have been the producer's intention but also what each individual viewer sees in it and gets from it. While I appreciate your take on it as I also see that aspect, please do not deny me mine. As Zen as it might be to live in the moment, a person is not just who he is being now, but who he has been and who he might be and everything in his life which contributed to that.

    That we love even those who hurt us does not justify the hurting. That we acknowledge negative aspects of life is not by itself being bitter but being constructive so that we might improve upon ourselves. But denying them is unrealistically Pollyannaish because while denial may produce momentary euphoria, it might not bring the lasting contentment which derives from understanding and acceptance, from expanding our individual and collective consciousness, from evolving beyond our given selves.

    AMoonHawk saidI find it kinda creepy ... it also seems fake ... just shake the kid and wake him up


    Maybe you forget how a child thinks. He's awake, yet he's shy and pretends that he's sleeping. Trust me, I remember myself in the same situation.

    Children can be shy and silly sometimes. icon_wink.gif

    Thanks for correcting me, i still make mistakes after all, as i'm not native and haven't lived in any english-speaking culture before, and very sorry if i caused any inconvenience to your reading.

    I'm not as matured as you are, so i really can't think that much just by watching the short video, so thanks for giving the insights, and yes i agree with whatever you say.

    You're pretty good at being sarcastic, gotta admit that too.

    Your writing is no inconvenience at all. It is a pleasure. You exhibit a wonderful heart and could make a great diplomat one day. I envy your delight in living. May the mad mad world never engulf you.

    I was kinda dissapointed. After all the "waiting", I was expecting a bigger reaction ;)

    I came accross those "Hey son, daddy's home" videos not long ago, and gosh I cried. I'm not supporting the war, neither the army, and I'm not even a US citizen, but just this pure raw and innocent emotion is enough to make me shed a tear.
