Hopak – Cossack dance, is a Ukrainian folk dance with technically amazing acrobatic feats

This video, like many dance videos, made me feel a desire and wish to have the abilities, powers and skills of the dancers in a way similar to when I see birds flying, and wish I could fly. The beauty of dance and birds in flight gives me a secure feeling, perhaps because I am in the presence of beings and creatures that have abilities and powers that could possibly increase the chances of acquiring the necessities of life, as well as escaping the dangers to it. The message of the video is that by my witnessing dance and birds in flight, I have been allowed to witness and thus associate with creatures that have remarkable abilities that I do not have, nevertheless, even the possibility of my benefiting directly and/or indirectly from this association is beautiful and attractive, perhaps because my association  with creatures that have these remarkable abilities could possibly imply  an association of myself with the creator who is the all powerful originator, sustainer and protector of all life.

Incarcerated Childhood: US kids prosecuted as adults

The depiction in this video of children in USA prisons causes me to question the need, fairness and propriety of imprisoning children as much as presently done, or even at all. Sometimes these child prisoners are placed in solitary confinement and/or suffer sexual and/or other forms of abuse which, some people believe, are types and forms of torture, because they sometimes result in psycho pathological symptoms, some of which are permanent, such as suicide and other permanent psycho pathological problems. This video alleges that all of this takes place more in the USA than in some other countries. The message of this video is that there are problems in the USA resulting in the suffering and death of children, and that these problems are not as great in some other countries as they are in The USA.

Baltimore School Police Officer Slaps, Kicks, And Curses At Young Black Man

This video causes me extremely intensely, and quite irresistibly, to want the person or people responsible for the apparent torture depicted in this video, fairly investigated, and if need be, fairly brought before a judge and jury, and if need be, fairly punished. The apparent torture depicted in this video is what causes me to feel this way. For me, the message of this video is the magnitude of the miracle of forgiveness. I myself am not able to forgive the perpetrator(s) for the torture depicted in this video. Nevertheless, I have heard and read of Godly victims of Nazi persecution during Word War Two, who in person actually witnessed the death by torture of their closest family members during the war, and after the war, meeting in person, and miraculously, before man and God, with God’s help, forgiving the former Nazi perpetrator(s).

FORGOTTEN? Syria’s Children of war

At first, this video makes me feel like crying, and that I am helpless to help. However, after thinking about this video for a while, I realized that in the past in order to avoid legal problems, I paid income taxes to the Federal U. S. Government, who may have used those taxes to acquire weapons of torture and death, which the Federal U. S. Government may have used to prevent those people depicted  in this video who were the victims of torture and death, to enter the USA, where they would have a much better chance of survival than in the country of their birth. I could just as well have avoided legal problems if I had donated enough of my income to tax exempt charities to bring my taxable income sufficiently low enough to remove my obligation to pay any taxes, but this would have reduced my take home income much more than than my paying taxes, so I paid the taxes. Not only did I neglect to use my money to attempt to reduce suffering and death by donating my money to charities committed to help people suffering torture and death, like those people depicted in this video, but in order for me to donate less money to charity and in order for me to keep more money for myself, I paid taxes, which may have been used to purchase weapons, which may have been used to prevent the people depicted in this video suffering torture and death from entering the relatively less dangerous USA. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I am exceedingly wretched. I will keep on praying and reading my Bible in hopes that God will bring me closer to Him, and that I will surrender to Him.

Asmaul Husna “99 Names of Allah”(Official Video Original HD) Mustafa Özcan Günesdogdu

This video causes me to feel the enjoyment of the music, and the gratification of learning the attributes and qualities of God and what God is and consists of. This video causes me to feel this way because it is a vital lecture and lesson in theology, which is the study of religious faith, practice, and experience, the study of God and God’s relation to the world and a system of religious beliefs or ideas. The message of this video is grace, which is undeserved love. I do not deserve any of the love of God for me that caused Him to create, sustain and nurture me. Nevertheless I enjoy all the rewards of God’s love for me.

This video makes me feel great joy. The holy, spiritual music, lyrics and dance presented in this video are for me irresistible propellants and motivators to great exultation and celebration. The message of this video is that miracles have really happened and will always continue to happen.

Stille Nacht (Silent Night) German – Sing Along

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar.
Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar,
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Hirten erst kundgemacht
Durch der Engel Halleluja,
Tönt es laut von fern und nah:
Christ, der Retter ist da!
Christ, der Retter ist da!

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht
Lieb’ aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund’.
Christ, in deiner Geburt!
Christ, in deiner Geburt!

Silent night, holy night,
all is calm, all is bright
round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant, so tender and mild,
sleep in heavenly peace,
sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night,
shepherds quake at the sight;
glories stream from heaven afar,
heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born!

Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, love’s pure light;
radiant beams from thy holy face
with the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.

Silent night, holy night,
wondrous star, lend thy light;
with the angels let us sing,
Alleluia to our King;
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born!

This popular Christmas carol, composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr in the small town of Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria, makes me feel all the joy of Christmas at all times of the year, whenever I hear it. The hymn sung in the original language in which it was first written intensifies this mystique for me. The message of this video is best expressed in the lyrics, shown above.
