Yes you said that earlier on the thread under the links to the videos.
However, only the first one was about tragedy. The lessons in that video are (1) be prepared for tragedy, especially if you have a hostile family, (2) prepare wills, powers of attorney, etc. and (3) had Proposition 8 not passed, they could have been married and been spared all the heartache.
The other videos are much more uplifting.
