Expanding the WORLD of the World Parkinson Congress

    One of my lasting memories from the World Parkinson Congress in Montreal in 2013 was viewing the videos in the WPC video competition. I particularly remember the video "Power Forward" that documented a group, including former-NBA player Brian Grant, hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro. The video had both beautiful images and an inspiring message.

     When the video competition was announced for WPC 2016, I considered sharing my travel and Parkinson's support experiences from around the world. However, having only a self-taught, rudimentary knowledge of Windows Movie Marker and very little (if any) artistic ability - I didn't think I'd be able to put together anything worthy of presenting. Later I heard there would be an amateur category, so I played around with my many files of photos and video clips and came up this...

P.S.  When I loaded my video to YouTube I got the notification from YouTube seen in this did they know that my video might be "shaky" - ha, ha.
