“If You’re Reading This”

Posted by lozenp on July 26, 2007

I’ve been hearing a song from Tim McGraw for the past month and it always gets to me. He performed it live at the ACM Awards and it’s been on country radio for about a month or so.

It’s basically a letter written from a soldier to his family in the event he dies in combat. Take a look at the video link below. Yes, it is country music. For those of you who are not country music fans, bite the bullet, it’s only 4 minutes long.

It’s pretty touching. While the whole song is emotional, there’s one line that I really like:

“Just remember this, I’m in a better place, Soldiers live in peace and angels sing amazing grace.”

What a cool picture that paints. Peace. Soldiers from all walks just singing along with the angels.

MSNBC.com published some actual letters from U.S. soldiers if you’re interested. I haven’t had time to read any yet, but I’m sure it’s eye opening.
