Video of the Day–Peace

Today, we’ve got two videos, thanks to the biggest software giants–Microsoft and Apple.  If you haven’t seen their Holiday commercials, you’ve been missing out.  The first video, from Windows, features the song Let There Be Peace on Earth.  I remember this song from an old episode of Touched by an Angel about the crisis in Ireland (if …
