The best of their generation...

DC Media Girl pointed this out to me. Watch it. Then remember the words:

"These laid the world away: poured out the red
Sweet wine of youth; gave up the years to be
Of work and joy, and that unhoped serene
That men call age, and those who would have been
Their sons, they gave their immortality.
- Rupert Brooke, The Dead "

For me the video evokes laughter and sadness. Here they are, the best of us, the best of their generation. Funny, brave, generous and more. And there they are and we still don't know why.
