The greatest music video ever made.

This is one of the most-moving things I've ever seen. This kind of brilliance and cooperation - and all of it on a volunteer basis by what seems to be most of the city of Grand Rapids - restores my faith in humankind. Plus, it's one of the most powerful songs of all time. If you were offline during Memorial Day weekend like me (at the lovely ConQuest SF party convention), you might have missed it.

Roger Ebert calls it "the greatest music video ever made." WATCH NOW!


I teared up almost immediately and had to wipe my eyes almost constantly at the beauty of what it took to make this happen, with hundreds (thousands?) of people spontaneously getting together to declare their unity and delight together.
