Christmas in the Trenches--The Christmas Truce of 1914

This truce was a small miracle, one that offers a pathway and hope in our warlike age. John McCutcheon, the great American folksinger, composed a beautiful song about this truce, "Christmas in the Trenches," and can be seen in the video below:
