Barry in Oz. This was originally sent to me from a cousin in Canada (his Grandparents were from Hyde as well). The singer is actually blind as is a champion athlete in the Para Olympics. I always get a tear in my eye when I see this.

Very moving, and a lesson to be learnt for all those who ignore the two minutes silence. It should be shown on large screens in all public places.
