My Bunibuni Family
A picture is worth a thousand words—so goes a popular saying. Therefore I am not going to bog you down here with my proclivity for prolixity. The video you are about to watch is the product of careful scrutiny, and a methodical but rewarding journey back in time to immortalize or memorialize the members of my Bunibuni family. It was a collaborative effort as well, and I want to personally thank Buni/Bruno, Siarani, Princess Juubee and Molade for their invaluable assistance in making this a reality.
I wish to remind you that a fairly detailed list of the verifiable members of the Bunibuni family can be found HERE. Please try to read that page to understand the criteria with which the selection was made. That list however is not set in stone—as often as the room gets a sizeable number of new, verified and active members, the list will be updated again and again.
The same conditions apply to this short video. Here, we tried as much as we could, to obtain freely given or readily-accessible pictures of dearly beloved Bunibuni members. The goal is not only to foster a deeper bond between members, but also to help us remember the people we might have met in Bunibuni but of whom we may no longer be consciously aware or even remember. Life does that to you, y’know—soon the memories begin to fade, the names become foggy and all that is left is a blur representing all the months and years that you might have spent there.
Fortunately, it is heartwarming to note how Bunibuni has helped in connecting people all over the world. It is very pleasant to note the many reunions popping up here and there—some announced, others not so publicized; some large gatherings, others just between two people. It is deeply encouraging to note them all. Nevertheless, in as much as we might meet one another in these splintered groups—possibly based on geographical or financial considerations—we would still do well to spare a thought to the global Bunibuni family. The commemoration of all members of the Bunibuni family regardless of their location on this pale blue dot is precisely what this video aims to achieve. Obviously, it may not be possible to get the pictures of everyone on the detailed list owing to the fact that a good chunk of them are no longer as active as they were in the past. There is also the fact that some viewers may not have become members of the Bunibuni family when the detailed list was painstakingly and meticulously compiled. Please bear with us.
At any rate, if your name is on the detailed list but you were not represented in the video and you would have loved for that to be the case, indicate in the comments below. I will contact you personally later to help you make your wish a reality. Like I said previously, when we get a sizeable portion of new people expressing a desire to be remembered in the video, this current video will be updated. So continue to check this space for updates.
Feel free to use the comment box below the video for all your comments, questions, suggestions, criticisms, and jokes. When I say that I have been blessed by knowing you all, and that I sincerely cherish you all (without exception), it comes from the very depth of my heart.
Lovingly and faithfully in your service,
