Did you happen to see this amazing segment on 60 Minutes last Sunday? If not, do yourself a favor and take the next 13 and a half minutes to watch it. You will be inspired and uplifted, and if you're anything like me you'll have a catch in your throat moments into the first scene.
I was so touched by this story that I also tracked down the trailer for the German documentary film that first introduced the Kimanguiste Symphony Orchestra to the world. I can't wait to see the whole thing:
"This will be our response to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before."
