Note: I've decided to be a little more diverse in my selections for Poetry Friday, and I am no longer restricting myself to genealogy-related poems. Instead, I would like to share poems that move me, or inspire me.
Below is "Lost Generation", a video poem created by Jonathan Reed for an AARP challenge to youth/college students in 2008 to imagine themselves at 50. The video came in second place, but it became somewhat of a sensation, and currently has been viewed over 6.5 million times. Which is impressive since the video consists solely of scrolling words on a black screen with corresponding audio. (Give it at least 55 seconds before you decide to stop listening.)
