This is an anti-war song written by Jonathan Edwards. Sunshine was written in 1971 during the last years of the Vietnam War as a protest song. The conflict in Vietnam lasted from 1959 to 1975 (with the U.S joining in late 1964) and most of the soldiers who served were between the ages of 18 and 21 (just kids fresh out of high school or college drop outs). Then almost 30 years later another war much like the one fought in Vietnam surged, this time they call it the Iraq War.

UPDATE July 5, 2010:
The story of this video goes: I was making a video that I kind of wanted to coincide with the song and its history. Sunshine was written in 1971, the same year Nixon was president (Hence the Nixon images.) Now at first this video was going to be strictly Vietnam, however a day prior to me finishing the video I come to find out that one of my friends whom I've known since I was a little kid was stop loss and shipped back to Iraq after serving 2 tours. That's when I decided to make the video about both wars.
