I really like that song. I think I would have chosen some different pictures – it seems to end with uplifting pics of welcoming back soldiers and a patriotic 7-gun salute, and I don’t think that’s where he was going with the lyrics. I maybe would have shown some sad & lonely people visiting grave sites. But I appreciate the song being posted and the power of the singing.
