The Bridge--Lest We Forget

Heavy. Too deep. Controversial. Jarring. Powerful. Meaningful. Describe it as you may, but this video sends a clear message. One I received and receive every day. Lest we forget.

I’m curious what you thought after you watched it?

*Thanks to tangle for the video


  1. Sorry, I don't know if it is just my computer, but I couldn't get the video to play.

  2. I'll look into it, Tabitha. Bum, b/c it's a good one. Thanks for letting me know. If this is true for anyone else, please let me know. I found clicking the play button more than once helps.

  3. I just don't have any words, I can't finish watching it. Incredible. Heartbreaking. My whole body hurts and I'm in tears.

    Thank you.

  4. That's such an incredible video. Such an amazing tool of sharing God's love. It's one of those that leave you without words.

  5. From what I could see of the video it is one of those things that makes your greatful for all God has given us and the strength he gives some of us to move on even with it being the toughest decision the Man would ever have to make.

  6. Wow! That is a great reminder of God has done for us. Thanks for sharing.

  7. It's hard to type after watching that video due to my blurred vision. Words to describe it? Powerful. Poignant. Heart-rending. Evocative. Thought-provoking. Vitally important.

    What a profound tool for sharing the message of how much God loves us and what He suffered for our sake.

  8. Words can't describe...because I am the girl in the red cap...I am the addict who happened to notice His tears on the side of the tracks as His heart broke into pieces just to save mine.

    Thanks Wendy...you helped refresh my heart today.

  9. Oh my gosh, I'm bawling right now. What an amazing video. I'm going to post it soon, if you don't mind.
    The saddest part was that no one even knew. They had no clue, just went about their business. Except the woman. She saw.
    My face is so wet right now. What an amazing video. Thank you!

  10. Gah! If this is the one I think it is, well, I'm tearing up just thinking about it. It's a good device for putting things into perspective--especially when we're feeling alone and unloved. A God that loves us this much would never leave us alone.

  11. This is so powerful - I knew the story, but to SEE it is entirely other. Thank you for this reminder, and THANKS BE TO GOD for the amazing gift of His love.

  12. Wendy, extreme emotion with thankfulness. Heart-wrenching, we don't often think of The sacrifice that way.

    Thank you

  13. Oh. I had to turn it off as soon as I saw what it was. That clip has left me sobbing. Can't even imaging walking that through in my life. God; what we so don't get and what you protect us from.

    So, so sold out for Him.

  14. I've heard that analogy before. To make it into a video makes it SO much more powerful! Yep, I cried.

  15. Tabitha, hope you were able to come back to watch it.

    Janna, I was on the fence about posting it b/c I had too heavy posts in a row. But how could I not?

    Kristen, I thought it was inventive also.

    Doodles, I cannot imagine making a decision like that. Can't fathom it.

    Lazy Writer, I thought it was exactly that.

    Keli, I like vitally important. As I wrote earlier, I debated posting it, but it seemed too important.

    Bina, thanks for your confession. In my own ways, I've worn a red cap too.

    Jessica, I think that is what hit me most also, the lack of gratitude or even acknowledgment of all he'd done/given...

    Danyelle, well put. We are not alone.

    Beth, I also enjoy the beginning when the man and the son are watching the snowflakes together. There's something intimately warm about that...and when the boy flies his arms.

    Karen, I agree, this video pushed God's story to a new place of thinking.

    Sande, He has protected me from much. I'm thankful for all the decisions He makes I'm ignorant to.

    Katie, I'm a visual person (hence all my pictures) so this video drove it home for me.

    Okay, so I'll be honest, I know it seems like I was trying to get you all as sad as I was the day before, but I promise...not so. I came across the video and as I wrote, I felt compelled to post it.

    One of my favorite lines from a book is Suede declaring in Peace Like a River, "Once torched by truth, a little thing like faith is easy."

    Rest knowing He came to SET US FREE.

    Good night (and we shall laugh tomorrow),

  16. Very powerful, Wendy. To think that in some churches speaking of the Blood is forbidden, because some people find it offensive!

    "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes." (Romans 1:16)

  17. Well, I was sad but the end was hopeful. He saw the child and knew that what he'd done had given someone else life. Had given someone else a son. So it was a good ending, just heartwrenching. I posted it today. Hope you don't mind.

  18. Anne, fitting verse.

    Jessica, Don't mind AT ALL. :D Thanks for doing so.
