Oh so beautiful. It reminds me of the movie "Joyeux Noel" – a WWI story.

Too many people discount the power of music to communicate across traditional communication barriers. I remember, as a limo driver in between jobs, driving a very wealthy and influential man to his appointment with a senior from North Carolina. The man asked me, among other things, about my background. When I told him that I earned my Bachelors and Masters degrees in music, he very bluntly told me that he considered such endeavors as a waste of time. (I guess he had a point, I was hired as his driver after all.)
His comment, however, made me think of him with pity. That man knew only business, power, and money as a means of obtaining the things he valued; money, power, control…
I guess it all depends on your values.
I'm glad that the two men, in the end, valued the same things.

Wow. When you find the complete package of courage, wisdom, and goodness in a man, never discount what he can do.

The young German could have been Catholic, too, a lot of them were.

Wow! What a beautiful story…Side note: I can't believe how piercingly blue that man's eyes are. Just wonderful!

Reminds me of a story I've read with each of my children (part of the Seton curriculum): The Singing Tree . . . when the men from both sides, laid aside their weapons and lit their matches and sang Silent Night together . . . THIS was a great true story. His eyes were just twinkling!

His eyes? I was more impressed that he can still play the trumpet!
