Hi. Great camera work, good lyrics. I enjoyed the kids performance. Liked the sign [ Respect your elders]. Pity that many people also children have not been taught that by their parents. I agree that many are bustin to visit up north to the warmer climate and to see the great scenery.

That was just great guys, and a first class production too. Sometimes the smallest little things make massive differences. Hope it makes a big hit on Youtube for them. Best wishes to you guys, cheers, Kanga1.

So good to see those kids involved in this! A brilliant concept by whoever put it all together. I can imagine it took a lot of work, and it was such a smooth finished clip, lip sync n' all, it was just GREAT!. Thanks for sharing. Michelle

So good I've put it on FB, emailed link to family and U.S. friends. Already had a response from California, "oh that was awesome"

We need to get more of the good news out into the world and stop all the bad news. Thanks for making my day.

Mate,
thanks for the clip.

I never tire of watching young aboriginal kids playing. It is a pity they grow up.

Hope the clip does something for the problem that exists in their community and maybe in some of ours.

hahaha yes it is a pity all kids grow up, yes lets hope it works to a better end for them, they have a rather bleak outlook for them here so they need this kinda stuff to drag them away from the everyday bad stuff to see that there is a good life to be had for them, if they choose to take it ...........
And that is our job to assist our kids to take it eh..
Cheers
