The Sniper and the Trumpet Song

What has for centuries raised humanity above the beast is not the cudgel but an inward music; the irresistible power of unarmed truth, the powerful attraction of its example. — Boris Pasternak

Inspiration of the Day:
Two weeks after D-Day, Col. Jack Leroy Tueller’s made a decision to play his trumpet. The last remaining German sniper threatening his unit was so moved that he couldn’t shoot, and surrendered the next morning. By choosing to play “his love song” Jack had sensed the fear and loneliness in that sniper, and had recognized that he too had that within himself. Now 90 years old, in this two minute video, Jack shares his priceless story with us.

Be The Change:
In your next moment of conflict, whether large or small, turn to your own native expression of beauty.
