The best video you will see today – The Silence and the Darkness

Stuff like this is truly the reason social media exists… taking one family’s struggles and turning into a full blown tribute to two young heroes who achieve greatness…all while being narrated by Flint and Lady Jaye!

Paul over on Facebook let the G.I. Joe Discussion Group know about his young son’s early life battling cancer.  Given very grim chances for survival at only two years old, this young man overcame the illness and has now been a cancer survivor for five years.

Every year Paul makes a movie poster tribute to celebrate his son’s conquest over the disease, but this year he took it one step further.  Bringing his younger sister into the action, he compiled a fantastic four-minute video chronicling the two young warriors, now known as “The Silence and The Darkness”!  Not only that, but Bill Ratner (Flint) and Mary MacDonald-Lewis (Lady Jaye) lent their considerable vocal talents on narration.

This was an amazing video to watch.  Kudos to Paul and his family, and thanks for sharing this great tribute to two young fighters.
