Video Special: Veterans Day Tribute
Jonathan sings "United By the Wall"
This song was inspired by the incredible sense of loss that the entire tragedy in Southeast Asia brought to our world in the 60's and 70's and by the ultimate sacrifice made by the men and women whose names are forever engraved on the Viet Nam Memorial. Chuck and I also tried to be mindful in our writing of the millions of other families, friends and loved ones indelibly injured, altered and effected on both sides and from many nations of this misguided and immoral military adventure conducted halfway around the world. But the main feeling behind the writing and the performance of this song and video is to bring to light the incredible healing power that "The Wall" seems to possess to all of us fortunate enough to have stood in it's presence and to have grasped the significance of it's silent message. I especially want to send it out to all the veterans of all the military conflicts that have been waged in our country's name with a huge "thank you" for your service and a deep appreciation for your sacrifice.
