APL Song Video
I finally saw the Black Eyed Peas' video for The Apl Song on Launch Yahoo! I was touched. Man, I suddenly remembered my grandpa who is like a dad to me. He is also a Fil-Am vet whose benefits were almost denied. And while he was here (I took care of him by the way), he was not properly attended when he needed policy-makers to hear his pleas. There were times that I would call certain people in-charge of senior citizens to complain about issues (like improper care in the nursing homes) and yet I was left unheard. It gravitated to a bigger issue when two people died. It became a news media event then and management had to change. If we were heard then, maybe lives would have been saved. Anyway, my grandpa was given a proper burial for a soldier which I was proud of. The guy playing the senior vet in the video, Marion Ginelsa, just died recently as well. My condolences to the family.
