Music!

Went to a Day for Heroes yesterday... a fund raising event for soldiers injured in Iraq / Afganistan. Cheryl Baker was the main compare and said a couple of times that she didn't want to talk about the politics of war but that the charity was a good one and deserved support.

While not talking about the politics of war there were videos of injured soldiers and how they need rehabilitation, hence the need to raise money. This seems to be quite a political statement, i.e. the government isn't caring for our troups so lets raise some cash...

Trying to keep politics out of the day was a bit pointless. My daughter had a Peace One Day wristband on and was asked about it by someone in the queue. There were plenty of army stalls trying to recruit people while on the stage videos of soldiers with limbs missing were played. I'm sure I wasn't the only one thinking it wasn't a great advert for recruitment.

The music wasn't for me although Legend (Bob Marley tribute band) were excellent. My daughter seemed to like McFly...

Anyway my friend Rob sent me a link to this great song:
