Say Something

I decided to something a little bit fun. I put together video that I took around campus and set it to music. The song I chose was "Say Something" performed by Pentatonix. They are one of my favorite groups and I love their rendition of the song. I also added a quote I really liked to the end of the music video. It's a quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen.

"Every time we make the decision to love someone, we open ourselves to great suffering, because those we most love cause us not only great joy but also great pain. The greatest pain comes from leaving. Still, if we want to avoid the suffering of leaving, we will never experience the joy of loving. And love is stronger than fear, life stronger than death, hope stronger than despair. We have to trust that the risk of loving is always worth taking."

I would love to hear what you think so please comment with your thoughts and if you would like to see more things like this.


  1. Rachel -
    I really enjoyed your video around campus, it took some time for me to realize exactly where some of those videos had been taken. I am glad you were able to capture Ada before winter, as that is something I'm not looking forward to at all. The group, Pentatonix did a nice job with this song and it took a google search for me to remember who actually sang this. I really enjoyed your video!

  2. Rachel,
    You're video was amazing. I liked trying to pin point where the pictures were taking. Campus is such a beautiful place in the fall, if only it could stay like that. As commented above, I think yo should definitely make more videos similar to this!
