Watch Common perform his poem "This War We Fight".
In honor of Veterans Day, Common decides to come through today and give his “This War We Fight” poem the visual treatment. The poem was originally read by Common over the weekend at the White House for the 2014 Veterans Day Celebration.
Shot in all black and white, Common stands looking out a window while staring at the Washington Monument and reading the heartfelt poem. A very powerful visual to say the least.
Check it out above and be sure to remember to thank our vets not just today, but errday. Nice job, Common.
