Wherever You Will Go

“... Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee:
for whither thou goest, I will go...”

- Ruth 1:16

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   We'll be using this song on this day every year, primarily because I adore the graphics!

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wherever_You_Will_Go:

"Wherever You Will Go" is the title of a song written and recorded by American alternative rock band The Calling. It was released in June 2001 as the first single of their debut album Camino Palmero. It remains their most renowned and their most successful hit, peaking at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the Adult Top 40 for 23 weeks, setting a record for that chart behind Santana's hit song "Smooth" (lead singer Alex Band would later collaborate with Santana on an alternate version of that band's song "Why Don't You & I").

Songwriter Aaron Kamin told LAUNCH about the background behind the song. "My cousin passed away, and he and his wife had been married for 50 some-odd years, and I was just putting myself in his shoes. Like, losing somebody after, like, 50 years," Kamin said. He went on to refer to the September 11 attacks that occurred only a few months after the song's release and said that the song has "become more relevant in our lives as the world has changed recently. It's been rekindled even more so for us, I think, right about now..."[1]

The Candy Bomber (worth the time to watch :-))

Absolutely worth taking the time to view this TRUE STORY video from those first years after WW 2. There is a special surprise at the very end. Found it impossible to keep my eyes dry while viewing. You'll need a box of tissues.

This is My America!! Where did our beautiful, giving, country go?????????

        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/29/14 - "Reflections of Your Life":

Photographer Tom Hussey created a series of pictures that will speak to you, no matter your age, race, beliefs or occupation.

The Reflection photos illustrate just how much we change in our lives and how it seems to happen all at once, no matter how many years actually go by. These will grip your soul.

Reflection gives insight into the former lives of these senior citizens.

       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 01/29/14 - "The Silence...":

The Silence

About six miles from Maastricht. in the Netherlands lie buried 8,301 American soldiers who died in "Operation Market Garden" in the battles to liberate Holland in the fall and winter of 1944-5. Everyone of the men buried in the cemetery, as well as those in the Canadian and British military cemeteries has been adopted by a Dutch family who mind the grave, decorate, and keep alive the memory of the soldier they have adopted. It is even the custom to keep a portrait of "their" American soldier in a place of honor in their home. Annually on "Liberation Day" Memorial Services are held for "the men who died to liberate Holland." The day concludes with a concert. The final piece is always "IL Silenzio", a memorial piece commissioned by the Dutch and first played in 1965 on the 20th anniversary of Holland's liberation. It has been the concluding piece of the memorial concert ever since.

This particular year the soloist was a 13 year old Dutch girl, Melissa Venema, backed by André Rieu (born 1949) and his orchestra (the Royal Orchestra of the Netherlands). This beautiful concert piece is based upon the original version of taps and was composed by Italian composer Nino Rossi in 1965.

Watch at this site and go full screen. Beautiful & moving.

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 01/28/13:

For his entire working life, a dedicated and hardworking astrophysicist tried in all earnestness to find the existence of other beings somewhere in the universe. After 58 years of constant effort, he finally received a response from a planet 30 billion light years away.

“What is your planet like?” groaned the extraterrestrial from the other side of the Galaxy.

“It is 12,756 Kilometers in diameter, is 93,000,000 miles from the nearest star, our sun, has an average temperature of 72 degrees F. We breathe oxygen, live about 75 years, and have both men and women,” answered the physicist.

“Do you get along with the women on your planet?” the extraterrestrial asked slowly.

Puzzled by the question, but not wanting to insult the female physicists near by, he answered, “Why, yes. We get along quite well here.”

The extraterrestrial perked up, “Can we send you ours?”

Wherever You Will Go

- Aaron Kamin
(b. 10 Aug 1977)

Recorded by The Calling, 2001

So lately, I've been wonderin'
Who will be there to take my place
When I'm gone, you'll need love
To light the shadows on your face
If a great wave should fall
It would fall upon us all
And between the sand and stone
Could you make it on your own

[Chorus:]
If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I'll go wherever you will go

And maybe, I'll find out
The way to make it back someday
To watch you, to guide you
Through the darkest of your days
If a great wave should fall
It would fall upon us all
Well I hope there's someone out there
Who can bring me back to you

[Chorus]

Runaway with my heart
Runaway with my hope
Runaway with my love

I know now, just quite how
My life and love might still go on
In your heart and your mind
I'll stay with you for all of time

[Chorus]

If I could turn back time
I'll go wherever you will go
If I could make you mine
I'll go wherever you will go
