Remembrance Day: Mark Knopfler

I like this piece of music (and the musician) and have to say that I really found the video quite helpful in letting me make some space to thing and prepare for the many remembrance events and lessons I have this and next week.

I hope you find it valid:

We will Remember Them

Thanks Vic.

One of the best Remembrance songs I've ever heard. Beautifully written, subtle, moving and such a tribute to those no longer with us. I heard a Mark Knopfler explaining why he wrote this. He said he was very moved, like most of us, by the 9/11 losses but couldn't find the right words so left it simmering for a few years. When he came back to it he decided that his song would be for all people in all wars...He was right to wait, don't you think?
