“Born this Way”

“Seeing this video is inspirational because it highlights how talented people with disabilities are and the message behind the song resembles equality and acceptance. It proves that anybody has potential and it sets a great reminder to others that everyone is not different from each other, regardless if they have a disability or not. Dance flashmobs are very popular and get the media’s attention. Usually, dance flashmobs targets a musician or the band that they are supporting. I personally thought this flash mob was awesome, simply because although the dancers and singers were simply having fun, they were targeting the true meaning of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’, which simply means self-acceptance. Being able to see the dancers and singers enjoy themselves shows not only how talented they are, but also shows that they also share the same values as any other person. That is what makes this video unique and inspirational.”
