This scene is repeated far to often here in Canada. This is my tribute to our fallen Heroes!

Looks like WMG has removed their copyright objection. Thank you to everyone whose comments clearly highlighted the absurdity of their actions.
My heart goes out to the families who endure the loss of their loved ones. Canada grieves with you every step of the way.

It is unfortunate that WMG has exercised their rights to protect this copy righted material. I am not sure if there is an option available to allow me to resolve this copyright issue. I am looking to contact the songwriter (Mark Knoplfer) via his web site and through intermediaries. Hopefully there is a solution that will allow this tribute to continue. In the meantime I appreciate the positive responses from this video. Please don't begrudge WMG as I'm sure this was a unilateral move on all potential violations on YouTube. If they actually saw the video I'm confident that would reverse their decision. In the meantime please enjoy the lyrics and remember those soldiers lost..

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arm

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've witnessed your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms
