Ep.209 Dear Democrats Across The Trenches: A Prayer for Truth and Freedom in 2022

In this episode of The Scalpel, Dr. Rose reflects upon an event that happened in 1914 between British and German soldiers. In the days leading up to Christmas, British troops heard German soldiers singing "Silent Night." They joined in. What followed was a truly unique and unexpected moment in the middle of a war.

In the political war of our current day, can we apply any lessons learned from 1914?

Do we want freedom enough to stop attacking each other and seek truth and freedom?

There are a number of sources of information that recount the Christmas Truce of 1914.
