Hymn To The Fallen

November 11, 2021

This will be a short post in honor of Veterans Day.

Most of you have heard pieces of John Williams’ Hymn To The Fallen via the film Saving Private Ryan. Here is a wonderful video with the full score set against a backdrop of photos that are sure to move you. If you are an American, the pictures and sheer numbers will bring you to tears. I am equally sure that this video will resonate deeply in other parts of the world as well. If you watch just one video this year, watch this one and ponder the history and future of our great nation. I personally thank you for doing so.

The next time you see one of our veterans in public (regardless of age, rank or sex), I also strongly urge you to go up straight away to that person and thank them sincerely for their service. Believe me, that small genuine act would mean a lot to so many.

Thanks to RemySwiss for posting this on YouTube.
