But it was a reminder that those who are "promoted" as our enemies, are also just like we are, in that we experience the same things such as love, commitment, loss, and pain and suffering over those loses. I hope you get as much out of it as I did. Its also a change of pace without losing perspective on how much alike we all are. One thing this conveyed perfectly is "Do not take your loved ones for granted since time can rob us of what is important to us, as can tragedy". Cherish them while you have them with you and cherish those precious moments together.
Its a rare thing when you can listen to a song in a foreign language and get the full impact of the meaning and purpose of the song. That is true talent from the heart which is the more powerful than the ego driven brain. Those of us that have souls, can feel each other and communicate without knowing the words and this was just such an example. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
