Most of us were are too young to remember the devastation of World War II, but this man does. Happily though, he also remembers a moment where he connected with a man who was meant to be his enemy.
The soldier tells of a night during wartime when he played his trumpet. He plays the same tune again, and you’d swear he was transported back to the time.
While his comrades probably appreciated the music, it was a German man that reached out to him the next day and said how much the song reminded him of his loved ones back home.
War forces us to choose sides and tells us who our enemies are. But this video reminds us that no matter what we’re told, we really are all the same.
