I think this song is appropriate. The *Playing for Change" Band made up of street muscicians from around the world. Link to their website PFC
Great Music, great cause! Worth a look! Obviously Bono is not a street musician just a believer in Playing for Change. :) Tony

Memorial Day, Indiantown Gap National Cemetary
PA USA. One of the daughters went to comfort her dad as he mourns, either a relative or perhaps a comrade who died in the Afghanistan war. The other daughter watched nervously unsure how to react.

This is the second in a series of four images with commentary that for me sum up the emotions I witnessed and felt of a day I spent at the National Cemetary for veterans outside the Indiantown Gap Military Reservation in Central PA. That day and these photos serve to remind me of the reality of war and the impact on those who have lost loved ones. I urge you to view them in order Mourning, Comfort, More Comfort and Last of the Day and hopefully take a minute to remember those who made the sacrifice, both the casualties and the survivors.
