Here's a challenge: Try watching this video without, a) producing at least one tear, and b) getting shivers all down your spine.

With the closing of 2012 coming, it's important to remember some of the highlights that made this year memorable. In 12 months we've seen some of the highest highs and lowest lows, all of which have been spread by the web. Breakthroughs, hardships, successes and tragedies have all occurred; but in the midst of the good, bad and ugly something happened that brought us all together, proving that in difficult times our humanity trumps all. Perhaps in watching videos such as this we can take that feeling of unity and kindness and apply it all year-round.
