A few years ago, an old friend of mine and a captain in the U.S. Army sent me some of the songs he’d written on the front lines and recorded while on leave. One of them was especially poignant considering his situation, and I produced a simple music video to ensure that his voice was heard by more than me. I wrote about it last year around this time, but obviously, today is a good day to give it another listen.
I give much thanks and appreciation to the brave men and women who give their lives so selflessly in order to fight for what they believe in. May we as a civilization realize the wisdom that will allow us no longer have to ask them for such a sacrifice so that true freedom can ring for all.
