Some Un-Discovered Footage of HMC's GALA Performance

This first one is ok, but not so great camera work:


and this is the ultimately heartbreaking John Denver's "All This Joy" featuring the pictures of all the youths that have killed themselves as a result of anti-gay bullying. Try not to dissolve into tears. It's impossible not to.

All This Joy

I'm afraid that this song has now become the classic that will be sung for years and years by anyone of us in HMC, at all occasions. I was a member of the chorus when we sang it and tied it to anti-gay bullying and LGBT suicide and more recently we sang it at a memorial service for one of our beloved members of the HMC family. It's alternatively heartbreaking, inspiring and thought provoking.



All this joy, all this sorrow
All this promise, all this pain
Such is life, such is being
Such is spirit, such is love
City of joy, city of sorrow
City of promise, city of pain
Such is life, such is being
Such is spirit, such is love
World of joy, world of sorrow
World of promise, world of pain
Such is life, such is being
Such is spirit, such is love
All this joy, all this sorrow
All this promise, all this pain
Such is life, such is being
Such is spirit, such is love
Such is spirit, such is love
