Brown Eyed Girl, American Soldier, Afghanistan

I went to Fred's Cafe tonight with some friends (see previous post about Fredburgers, especially the comments at the bottom).
The band was playing Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl".
I mentioned this video, no one had seen it, I said I'd post it.
This is what could be so great about globalization if only the nutcases among us would let it happen. Here you have an American kid singing something by an Irish musician accompanied by a roomful of Afghan soldiers.
The circumstances of everyones' being together aren't the best, but at least it looks like they're having a good time.

Thank you!
I needed a from the gut laugh today.
No doubt I'll be watching it several times this week.
