The video is a gut-punch reminder of all that's comtained in "Lost with all hands."

I remember in grade school geography, about 1955, that the shape of Lake Superior was compared to a wolf's head.

Here's hoping Gordy never has to write a song like this about the Church eh.
But seriously, that was a very strong video. Thanks for posting it.

Beautiful tribute video. As I watched this, I was struck by how infintessimally small are my problems.

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord
May perpetual light shine upon them
May they rest in peace. Amen+

I honestly think that without this song, the Edmund Fitzgerald would have been forgotten a long time ago.
