A Christmas Tribute to Our Fallen Heroes
May God bless the families of all who have given their lives for freedom’s sake. May we never forget the sacrifices these families have made.
From the YouTube Description:
THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG:
“Some Peace On Earth” was inspired by the work done by the Wreaths Across America organization and Jim Varhegyi’s photos of the “Wreaths In the Snow” at Arlington National Cemetery that went viral on the internet in 2007. Music publisher, Justin Wilde was so moved by the photos, he believed there should be an accompanying song, so he asked two of his best writers to come up with one. It took nine months, but it was worth the wait. Phillip Keveren’s lush melody and Steve Hostetler poignant lyric blended perfectly to create this patriotic holiday anthem which pays tribute to the United States military, and especially for those who died serving our country. Marshall Hall was asked to record the vocal. The end result was so moving and inspirational, Justin subsequently decided to produce and direct this video which chronicles the heroic sacrifices made by the men and woman of our armed forces over the last century.
During the hustle and bustle of the December holidays, we often fail to celebrate and honor those who made it possible for us to enjoy the wondrous blessings of liberty and freedom. For those who lost their lives defending our country, we can never thank them enough. Remember the families they left behind. Share your memories of those they lost. Assure them that their loved one is greatly missed and will never be forgotten. It is our hope that this song will become a part of America’s holiday tradition. To quote its lyric,
Every year at Christmas, we should not forget
Resting in those quiet fields are the bravest and the best
We need to show we understand what their sacrifice is worth
‘Cause they gave everything, just to bring … SOME PEACE ON EARTH
