We Teach Life, Sir

Gaza may be a warzone, but everyday life for its inhabitants has to continue. For some of those growing up in the violence, playing music has become an important source of relief. RTD (global news channel broadcasting from Moscow and Washington studios) has gone to Gaza City to follow music school students as they prepare for an end of year performance. Their experiences of war unite them as much as their love of music. They have survived the destruction, endured the horror of shelling and seen people die at first hand. Some have even come close to death themselves. Powerless in the face of such violence, they remain hopeful that peace will eventually come. Until then, they seek comfort in music. 
Heartbreaking and uplifting.
