This nearly brought tears to my eyes

Turn your volume down, get everyone to leave you alone, and take four minutes and watch the entire thing.

Just watch it and think about what you’re seeing.

(My thanks to Stacy Reller for highlighting this and bringing it to my attention.)

 If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after finding himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.

  1. This did leave tears in my eyes. Sometimes, some really great things are shared on Facebook. This, is one of them.

  2. Reblogged this on Stacy Reller and commented:
    RIP Soldier!

    I initially first saw this on Facebook, and shared it. And since my friend Stan blogged about it, I thought I would share the blog (I don’t know how to share the videos that people post on FB quite yet).

    This brought tears to my eyes. It was an amazing sight, May God Bless that Soldier’s family!

    • Thanks so much for reblogging this, Stacy!!! (And for alerting me initially as well.)

      It’s such a moving thing to watch, and I think every American ought to at least have to sit there in silence and watch it…

  3. Something like this is happening all too often in Israel right now.

  4. What do you mean “nearly”?
