What an adventure it was to travel to England and see the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace. The precision and sound of these wonderful soldiers stirs the heart and imaginations of people around the world. I stand there in awe as they play favorite tunes of all eras and the stately marches of pomp and circumstance. Then I remember that these men are also defenders of their country and homeland. While traveling on the train from Cambridge to London, I was able to talk to one of these men and I was so impressed by his devotion to music and country. His humble nature intrigued me as he told me about his military career. It was a joy for this American to stand silent and take in the Changing of the Guards. This is a must see when you travel to London.
