|“The Son of God
perfectly knows and understands, for He felt and bore our burdens before
we ever did. And because He paid the ultimate price and bore that
burden, He has perfect empathy and can extend to us His arm of mercy in
so many phases of our life. He can reach out, touch, succor—literally
run to us—and strengthen us to be more than we could ever be and help us
to do that which we could never do through relying upon only our own
David A. Bednar

ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?

From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/11/17 - "Masculine Wisdom (#1 in a Series of 12)":
|“I've knitted myself a hat, it's plum red with an appealing lace pattern, I figured that a few air holes would be nice now that it's spring. I put it on and feel like a cranberry in the snow, and I wonder if they can see me from the moon. Me and the Great Wall.”|

|A man had just bought a parrot at an auction
after some very spirited bidding.
"I suppose that bird talks?" he said to the auctioneer.
"Talks!" was the reply. "Who do you think was bidding against you?"

We Shall Overcome
Lyrics derived from Charles Tindley's gospel song "I'll
Overcome Some Day" (1900), and opening and closing melody
from the 19th-century spiritual "No More Auction Block for Me" (a song that dates to before the Civil War). According
to Professor Donnell King of Pellissippi State Technical Community College (in Knoxville, Tenn.), "We Shall Overcome"
was adapted from these gospel songs by "Guy Carawan, Candy Carawan, and a couple of other people associated
with the Highlander Research and Education Center, currently located near Knoxville, Tennessee. I have in my possession
copies of the lyrics that include a brief history of the song, and a notation that royalties from the song go to support the Highlander Center."
We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
Deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome some day
We'll walk hand
We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand some day
We shall all be
We shall all be free
We shall all be free some day
We are not
We are not afraid
We are not afraid some day
We are not
We are not alone
We are not alone some day
The whole wide
The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around some day
We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
