I was on the treadmill this morning a little bummed about the economy, the environment, all the attention Michael Jackson is getting, it’s not football season, yet, etc. Then I thought of this 30-second video I shot of our youngest son swinging in the batting cages when he was just a tyke.

He never gave up on trying to hit that ball. Neither should we on trying to make this planet a little more livable, and our lives a lot more sane.

So the next time you’re feeling down, think of our boy Caed swinging for the fences. It’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

BTW, you can ignore the shameless plug for our agency at the end. This video was my entry into our staff YouTube film festival we did last Fall. I just thought it was a fun escape for this afternoon.
