COMMENTARY · 18th December 2011
Terrace Daily News
If, perchance, you are in a funk, maybe wondering about your preparations or just can’t seem to get going, check out these contributions.

From a Village in Alaska called Quinhagak, a grade five class spent 10 hours shooting and editing a video on a weekend. The School is named Kuinerrarmiut Elitnaurviat and the class apparently put this video together for their local community of 200. As we prepare this story the you tube video has been watched just under 1.25 million times.

The teacher writes this in the comments on the Video;

“I am very proud of them! […] I now have a very teachable moment once we start school again. One they will never forget! I'm just glad I spelled "Hallelujah" correct. Thank you on behalf of Quinhagak, Alaska! Merry Christmas!

And this next video was recorded at a Mall in Redondo Beach near Los Angeles California. From one extreme of North America to the other. From the most upscale populations to the most downscaled living environment, the videos present an identical emotion.

Watch it by clicking here.

An amazing contradiction with an equally amazing reconcilement.

These videos might take time to upload and they are worth it. There are likely many more yet these two have a contrast and a similarity that is inspiring.

Merry Christmas Everyone. Have a great week from us at the Terrace Daily!
What a contrast to Attawapiskat!

Here are kids 'doing' for themselves, no infrastructure needed except a video camera , imagination and teamwork.
