    I LOVE THIS VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The old man is a holocaust survivor. The others are his family. I cannot believe that this video was controversial. It is saying to the Nazi's," You did not succeed. Your philosophy and government are dead. My family survived and is dancing on your evil heart and there is nothing you can do about it!!!! "
    Of course, myself and the overwhelming majority of us have not gone thru something as horrendous as Auschwitz. However, the video is defiantly positive and that we can all learn from. I use art to pump me up so that I will not only survive but also enjoy life. That is not to say that at times in my life I have not been suicidal. And some of those times have been very recent. My thoughts on suicide are best revealed in this song. See last paragraph of the song
    Title: Frank Sinatra - That's Life lyrics
    That's life, that's what all the people say.
    You're riding high in April,
    Shot down in May
    But I know I'm gonna change that tune,
    When I'm back on top, back on top in June.

    I said that's life, and as funny as it may seem
    Some people get their kicks,
    Stompin' on a dream
    But I don't let it, let it get me down,
    'Cause this fine ol' world it keeps spinning around

    I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
    A poet, a pawn and a king.
    I've been up and down and over and out
    And I know one thing:
    Each time I find myself, flat on my face,
    I pick myself up and get back in the race.

    That's life
    I tell ya, I can't deny it,
    I thought of quitting baby,
    But my heart just ain't gonna buy it.
    And if I didn't think it was worth one single try,
    I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly

    I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
    A poet, a pawn and a king.
    I've been up and down and over and out
    And I know one thing:
    Each time I find myself laying flat on my face,
    I just pick myself up and get back in the race

    That's life
    That's life and I can't deny it
    Many times I thought of cutting out
    But my heart won't buy it
    But if there's nothing shakin' come this here july
    I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die
    My, My

    lyrics to "I will survive." Song in the Holocaust video in the OP.

    First I was afraid
    I was petrified
    Kept thinking I could never live
    without you by my side
    But I spent so many nights
    thinking how you did me wrong
    I grew strong
    I learned how to carry on
    and so you're back
    from outer space
    I just walked in to find you here
    with that sad look upon your face
    I should have changed my stupid lock
    I should have made you leave your key
    If I had known for just one second
    you'd be back to bother me

    Go on now go walk out the door
    just turn around now
    'cause you're not welcome anymore
    weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
    you think I'd crumble
    you think I'd lay down and die
    Oh no, not I
    I will survive
    as long as i know how to love
    I know I will stay alive
    I've got all my life to live
    I've got all my love to give
    and I'll survive
    I will survive

    It took all the strength I had
    not to fall apart
    kept trying hard to mend
    the pieces of my broken heart
    and I spent oh so many nights
    just feeling sorry for myself
    I used to cry
    Now I hold my head up high
    and you see me
    somebody new
    I'm not that chained up little person
    still in love with you
    and so you felt like dropping in
    and just expect me to be free
    now I'm saving all my loving
    for someone who's loving me
