Non-Violence Overcoming Hatred; Love in Action

Firstly, I have to apologize for so many Beatles-centric videos…three in a row. I do really like them, but that’s not the reason; I posted the one yesterday and happened to come across the above one today (and then had to post the below one as well). Anyhow, this is awesome. If you only watch one of these watch the one above (but I do hope you view both). The above video was filmed in Times Square just yesterday by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady. It begins by showing Terry Jones spewing his hatred in Times Square. For those who have not heard of him, Terry Jones is the so-called pastor who threatened to burn the Holy Koran at his Florida church last year. Anyhow, the camera pans the stunned crowd and then one guy–who it looks like he Googled the lyrics on his phone–begins to sing. Within a short time the crowd is singing All You Need is Love loud enough that the pretend pastor is no longer heard. This is such an excellent short film.
