WOW!  that's all i could say after watching this video!

It's so incredibly powerful.  I know why the Faux, CNN, the press & the broadcasters chose to ignore this video rather then air it.

WOW!  it's too damn powerful & truthful to American audiences.

i remember when i was abroad & saw this video of the israeli & palestian fighting & saw right before my eyes a 12 year old boy killed.  they didn't censor it & didn't even hide it.  all they did was warn me it was coming.

it was so shocking b/c i will never forget it.

i understand the concern people have to protect themselves from violence & all but if we are so insulated that we can't feel it anymore, how does anyone expect us to react humanely to inhuman situations??

imagine if we had a video like this from Iraq?  or from kosovo?  or from rwanda?  or from sudan???

do you think people would be willing to do nothing??  & more, do you think people would finally be shocked out of their tiny insulated worlds & be forced to think about issues more deeply than they have?

i think videos like would certainly help foster more critical thinking.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    From the end of the article: The soccer PSA may have been viewed as crossing into advocacy, in which case it would not be eligible for free air time.  

    You tell the plain, horrible truth about something and, just b/c the administration doesn't want to do anything about it, it becomes advocacy.
