From "Christmas Under Fire," a 1940 British newsreel documentary, and evergreen for every year.
'Christmas Under Fire' truly puts things in perspective regarding how blessed I am along with many other in our country. Excluding the bombing of Pearl Harbor and attack on World Trade Centers (which were tragedies in their own right), we've never had an ongoing war fought on our soil since the Civil War. We have so much for which to be thankful.
Thank you for sharing this piece today and for your wonderful work and commentary every morning on Minnesota's Classical Public Radio! May you and your loved ones have a Merry Christmas and very Happy New Year!
