“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” (Henry Brooks Adams)
A year ago this week a special education teacher in Alabama, Jackie of AOL Journal “LIFE IN BAMA”, nudged me in Pennsylvania to try You Tube to communicate “Caregivingly Yours”.
A year later, between You Tube and Google Video, people have watched and perhaps experienced our story of living with Multiple Sclerosis over 15,000 times through our videos.
Apparently visual communication can also reach beyond the limitations of language. Our caregiving and living with MS videos have been linked and embedded in non-English journals and web sites. I am aware of links in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Danish, Swedish, Dutch, German, Turkish, and Asian character script.
Two videos lead the pack in views:
12 months on line (debut video)
· Views: 3,568 (You Tube) + 182 (Google Video)
6 months on line
· Views: 2,033 (You Tube) + 95 (Google Video)
Between You Tube & Google Video, four others have crossed the 1,000 views bench mark:
9 months on line
6 months on line:
Maybe I’m old enough to simply be easily impressed with technology but I still find it overwhelming. … and again, special thanks to my muse, Jackie, on this video anniversary.
Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer
