BLACKHAWK STORY with UKE soundtrack
This video is from Magic Carpet Ukulele. I do not want to get into politics. I think that this video with ukulele soundtrack speaks for itself and has a RESPECTFUL and COMPASSIONATE view of those who suffer and fight in wars. I post this because I think it is a powerful reminder to us all of the realities real people face in war, any war. It is not overly graphic. Click over to YT and see this in HD.
Any comments made that divisory or of some extreme politcal polarity will be deleted. HU
I saw the OM symbol on the ukulele and on a chain and wanted to understand that symbol more fully, so I looked here...
"Om or Aum is of paramount importance in Hinduism. This symbol is a sacred syllable representing Brahman , the impersonal Absolute of Hinduism — omnipotent, omnipresent, and the source of all manifest existence. Brahman, in itself, is incomprehensible; so a symbol becomes mandatory to help us realize the Unknowable. Om, therefore, represents both the unmanifest and manifest aspects of God. That is why it is called pranava, to mean that it pervades life and runs through our prana or breath."
