This is very moving. I have seen it a couple of times and it still brings me to tears.
Annually, on "Liberation Day," memorial services are held for "the men who died to liberate Holland." The day concludes with a concert. The final piece is always "Il Silenzio," a memorial piece commissioned by the Dutch and first played in 1965 on the 20th anniversary of Holland's liberation. It has been the concluding piece of the memorial concert ever since. This year the soloist was a 13-year-old Dutch girl, Melissa Venema, backed by André Rieu and his orchestra (the Royal Orchestra of the Netherlands). This beautiful concert piece is based upon the original version of taps and was composed by Italian composer Nino Rossi. Watch at the site below and go full screen. It's very beautiful and moving.

My doctor started me on a rehab exercise program.
I am walking with a walking therapist every day.
I never knew walking with someone else was such
We don't talk much during the walk, though.
My therapist walks about 10 feet ahead of me and
sets the pace, as directed by my doctor.
So far, I have followed her for 27 miles without
even using my cane!
I am feeling better each mile and my heart condition,
my blood pressure and my breathing seem to be improving.
I have fun where ever we go!
