National Police Week: Part Five, Bagpipes Alive

This is billed as The Lost Song. But it hasn't lost anything. This has rhythm, the heartbeat and the dance.
A counterpoint to the sadness of Amazing Grace. Just like good Gospel music, the sadness doesn't cancel out the joy and the vigor in this piece.


I hope this week has given balm to your souls, the gift of thanks from perfect strangers, renewal in relationships, some ease to the loss, relief from the stress. Last of all, I hope the appreciation crops up like good weather on unlikely days, making the rest of the year a little more as it should be.

Thank you for your sacrifice, your humor, the spirit within.

Wonderful series Ann! And I love the pipes!! When I lived in NJ at one point a group of bagpippers would practice every Friday night across the street at the grammer school. We'd all go out on the front porch have a few beers and listen. Great memories.
And Thank You to all Law Enforcement out there. I do appreciate your willingness to put your lives on the line Every Day to uphold the law. Kudos and stay safe.
