Recently, while sleeping and slipping in between twilight and consciousness, I had a dream about my fellow veterans, and this melody suddenly grew in my mind, so I got up, wrote it down, and then recorded it in my bedroom. Soon afterward, I made this video with it.
The theme of my dream was freedom, so I used the image of the Great American Eagle. Although the pictures in the video are not all of the American Eagle, my purpose was to send out a message that would be heard sublimely perhaps. . . I guess subconsciously. Whether I'd succeeded are not is not for me to decide, so I could use some feedback about the video.
It's unfortunate that blood has been shed for the freedom of this country, but it's reasonable to expect that more will to preserve it here and elsewhere. What are we without freedom? If we can't protect what we have with our freedom, all can be taken from us by the tyrants of the world.
This is essentially the meaning behind the video though there may be no words in the instrumental. Freedom should never be taken for granted, and we should never have to learn what it's like to live without it.
The music is original and I designed the video myself. If you ever find the time in this crazy, busy world to take a look at it, I'd be grateful, and I hope you enjoy it.
