I thought I could find a sound curricular justification for showing my students this:

What I didn't expect was how much they would love it. That warm gushy feeling I got the first time I watched it was multiplied many times sitting in a darkened room with my students from all over the world.

One young man wanted the story behind the lyrics. Anyone who has a line on Spanish translations of Rabindranath Tagore's poems, just shoot me an e-mail, will you?

I have now watched this video five times in the last two days. Even though I'm no world traveler, I was surprised at how many of the US locales I could immediately identify, mostly for having been there (I'm actually quite well-travelled within my own country).

What a totally amazing and cool video. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
