Pianist Honors Veterans Through Music

Music is the ideal way to pay homage to the dear departed. Nothing can replace the loss of a dear one but music gives solace to heavy hearts. Veterans Day is celebrated on November 12th this year. To honor the veterans who have laid down their lives for the country, retired professor of the University of Texas at El Paso Dr. Bonnie Brooks gave an extraordinary piano recital to the people who belong to that greatest time.

A ceremony was held where veterans were acknowledged who have fought bravely in the Five Korean Wars. This piano recital was the greatest way to owe a million thanks to the Veterans. The music played was healing. Paul P Lazovick of US Navy during World War II (1930 to 1949) was sitting on the front row and watching the recital. The music took him back several years ago when he was knocked down and injured on a Navy life saver boat. Mr Paul P Lazovick said Newschannel 9 after the recital, “You see your mates killed. It can be very distressful to see men die when you try to help them.”

Dr. Brooks who observed Paul Lazovick while playing the piano said that she saw Lazovick and it was disheartening to see him in tears. She said that when you can relate to the music played and the incidents that happened during your life, then you get tears in your eyes. She also added that Lazovick will be able to remember the good memories too.
