Comments from Dana-Marie:

The video tells a story of two kids struggling in their own way to carry on.  I sympathize with both of them as each seek compassion and yearn to understand why people act as they do.  "The Struggle to Forgive" does not offer any answers, it's simply my outcry from witnessing so much maliciousness and corruption in the world.  The song and video are about wishing for the courage to resist being pulled in to the game, and the strength to triumph over it with grace, understanding and love.

If this video resonates with you, please post it on your Facebook wall and/or Tweet it.  Please also take a second to post a Youtube comment and let me know what you think.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.
