OMG! This is brilliant! Not only do you apply academic education with this video, but also, interpersonal consciousness about what is important in our values as human beings! I applaud your keen sense of bringing awareness to so many of us who take even the smallest things for granted. I will share this video with my kiddos. AMAZING! Thank you for sharing.

Good! Thanks. The last gap is confusing for the students as they suddenly have to write in the past tense.

Thank you very much. I will present this video to my class in the very near future. The end is a bit confusing (simple past tense) as are the short forms. But, anyway, thank you very much!
