I'm posting this because, on my previous video, it was too hard to read the poem I wrote to honor my daughter's relationship with her dad. The most painful part of Eric's death, besides being forced to watch him die, is how much it has hurt my daughter. She accepted her high school diploma in the mail, because she was unable to attend graduation without him being there. She refused to get married, because she could not see anyone but her father giving her away. She's not a weak person. Being forced to watch him die affected her in an intense way, which I believe would happen to anybody. Anyway, I wrote the poem to emphasize how positive her relationship was with Eric. My main satisfaction was that she liked it (she has it in a frame on her wall). Beyond that there is no "closure" on this issue, only a long series of attempts to live despite what happened. Which I intend to do, if for no other reason than to spite the idiots who killed him.

Estelle Getty is my favorite actress. Her role as Sophia Petrillo on the Golden Girls always brought me such joy and laughter. I felt that giving her a short tribute was the least I could do to thank her for entertaining me all through the 80s and 90s. Vicki

This video will be obvious. It's a vid-log of me showing AngryAussie one of his Christmas gifts. I got his entire family gifts, because I was so grateful for how much he's helped me with online issues: like how to deal with pathetic, loser haters. But he's done more than that, and some of how he helped me surprised even me. I used to have a recurring nightmare that happened 4 to 6 nights a week. After I started watching the backlog of his videos, I noticed that the nightmare had completely disappeared. Replaced by dreams of the scenery in his videos, which was extremely pleasant to dream of when compared to dreaming of failing to save a relative of mine from dying in a fire. In the case of this relative who died in a fire, the Conspiracy theorists STFU video helped too. And continues to offer me support. I think after all he's done, the AngryAussie and the AngryClan deserve a gift from me.

This is more than a tribute to soldiers killed in war. My brother, Tom, is based at Ft. Hood and will be returning to the chaos that is still going on there. Thirteen people were killed, 31 more were injured, and I still don't know how many my brother may or may not have known. Either way, he has to have a response to what has happened. I just don't know what it will be. One act of violence that occurred b/c of one fool's stupidity. The aftershocks continue even if people are unaware they do.

This video is deeply personal to me. My brother went to Iraq in 2003, and might have to return. Ever since he served his first Tour of Duty, freedom has developed a more sobering, realistic meaning to me. He served with the 101st Airborne unit, which I think are called the Screaming Eagles. The poem at the end of this video is one I wrote for my poetry class.
