Sue, this clip made me cry. Dance is truly a powerful means of recovering from grief, a statement of resilience, a way to connect with community. These three generations didn't need dance lessons to show all that. Thank you for finding this for us.

There's no dance technique here, no awesome style or choreography -- just the power of dance for recovery from grief, resilience, and a way to connect with others. These three generations didn't need dance lessons to show all that. Thanks, Sue. This clip made me cry.

I didn't know whether to be appalled or admire the spirit—especially of the survivor either, but in the end, I had to agree with my 15 year old nephew who said, "oh my goodness. that's just wrong."

Joan, yes, they're not "dancers", but they sure are dancing - for their health, sanity and joy is having produced generations out of the ashes.
Sy, it is an odd thing, but not necessarily "wrong". He's the survivor - he gets to choose how he celebrates having, against all the odds, a loving family around him on this visit back to the scene of the crime.
