Video Thoughts on MLK from Afar

The making of the video

To spice up the annual Martin Luther King Day assembly at their school, the kids were asked to provide a brief video talking about what they had learned about diversity and difference and how the trip has effected their perspectives so far.  The boys were invited to participate as well.  What follows was shot in about 30 minutes on a peninsula in Frycinet National Park, Tasmania. Dana and I are very proud.

  1. Great job! I cannot believe how many languages you know. Gus will be really pleased that Greek made it into the video. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and insights with those of us at home. So much of what you have reported back has made an impact on how we think about life on a daily basis. I am still a scrooge about water and we are all trying to look beyond our little daily lives to reach out to the larger world.

    Keep being courageous and keep writing! xo Phyl

    Hi You Wonderful People!

    I’ve had some computer glitches in my life, but I’ve finally caught up to you.
    Loved your MLK video. Great to see how much you’ve learned and amazing that you have room for it all in your heads!

    You’ve obviously grown a lot, but your smiles are just as winning!

    Love to all of you, Skipper (from the Galapagos)
