Below the video we are giving Andie's creative inclinations full-reign and letting her follow through with a dire warning of how things might yet be, if we let them.
Imagine a time-frame, perhaps many years into the future, after perpetual wars have been fought, to no avail. Infrastructure is no longer uniformly in place and communication is an infrequent entity amongst people. Supplies and food sources are low, and suffering is prevalent. This video is presented as a creative statement and response to that condition for the 12 Seconds for Peace endeavor. A fictitious, clandestine bootleg-video press-release, a plea for peace, was created to look rugged and textured, as if compiled with rudimentary materials, not readily market-available for those that can access the message in high conflict, war-torn areas. The message is self-sustaining, imploring for an awakening to all mankind, knowing the answer lies within as an internal decision, with a decided action that can take place in a matter of moments.
Seconds indeed can change a world, if our internal world is changed first, via a powerful decision to replace the love of power with the power of love.

The legal stuff.
