all we have to do is keep on walking
Again, I have that feeling of being the Last Known Blogger in the Universe to have seen this YouTube video gone viral. That incomparable Brother-Unit, Tumbleweed, posted it on another of his blogs -- one that I'll not advertise -- but I like to think I'd have stumbled on it eventually by my own initiative.
He managed, however, to tag the thing with a perfectly apt quotation:
If we are facing in the right direction,
all we have to do is keep on walking.
