A Video for the 4th
In searching YouTube for an appropriate video to put up for the 4th, this one touched me the most. It is a film of the Queen's Guards outside Buckingham Palace, ordered to play the United States National Anthem, the day after 9/11, to show the country's sympathy with America, and to comfort the many U.S. citizens who had congregated outside of the palace gates after learning their flights home were cancelled. I think this is especially moving in light of the recent terror attacks in the U.K.
