PREREQUISITES: high school chemistry class (ahh, I still remember those grueling days of trying to understand why chemists would invent a concept just to torment us in class), a slight interest in scientific reasoning, a sense of humor.

Pass On, poem by Michael Lee

Powerful. Moving. Chills. No blurb really necessary for this one, just watch.
