    Very enjoyable, no tears here.

    The event is not important. The way they are dressed is not important.

    Am I the only one to see the love that a small girl has for her severely disabled brother?

    Wish people wouldn't video in portrait mode. Landscape or don't bother.

    That'd mean though, they'd have to first invent a camera you could hold in landscape.

    But wait, they have already

    Don't give up, that wouldn't be the caring Ken of old.

    But don't you think this, and similar YouTube posts of the same ilk are a little too contrived?

    Whomever is tasked with recording it all doesn't move from their station; other "dancers" mostly don't move between the camera and the subjects, probably because they've been told not to; the other dancers are (naturally enough for that age group) self centred and couldn't give a ratz about the subject couple.

    For those reasons my tear ducts didn't succumb and react to this social media crap.

    Probably right wal but it struck a chord with me, as the grandson of very good friends of mine went to his school ball a few weeks ago. He has had big problems with his legs over the years and has graduated out of a wheel chair to sticks. This all took place over the last year after about 25 operations since birth. His schoolmates, both male and female made sure he had a great night. His Nana was bawling her eyes out as she told me of this.

    So many of us older folk are a bit disparaging of young people but I think our world is in good hands in the future.

    So please forgive my tear!
