Something Wonderful: Taps at Sunset in Puget Sound

For the past two years now, one musician has made it his mission to play the same 24 notes from his balcony every day, rain or shine.

As his way of respectfuly paying tribute to our nation and its troops, this musician humbly feels it’s his sacred duty to play this song for his neighborhood. At the same time, each and on every single day, whenever he begins playing, it feels as though time seems to stop. He Plays "Taps" At The Same Time Everyday. Watch What His Neighbors Do When He Starts Playing...
And that's the real news of the day. Take it into your weekend.

I live about 100 yards from the back fence of a small Air Force station. Every night at 9:00PM they play taps over their outdoor PA system. For almost 40 years, I choke up when I'm outside and hear it. Yeah, I was a lifer.

People hunger for some beauty in their lives. This man made this one effort to create some beauty, by playing Taps at sunset.
