“The heart was made to be broken.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Here's another sad pre-Valentine's Day love song!
- Only Love Can Break a
Heart - Gene Pitney
|"Only Love Can Break a Heart" is the title of a popular song
from 1962 (see
1962 in music) performed by the American
Gene Pitney. The song was written by
David (words) and
Burt Bacharach (music) and appears on Pitney's second album
Only Love Can Break a Heart.
Pitney had enjoyed some success as a songwriter prior to breaking through as a performer in his own right. He wrote the songs "Hello Mary Lou", "Rubber Ball", and "He's a Rebel", the latter a number-one Billboard Hot 100 hit for The Crystals in 1962. Ironically, Pitney's success as a singer was beginning at this time, and "He's a Rebel" kept "Only Love Can Break a Heart" from topping the Billboard pop chart, where it spent one week at number two., and two weeks atop the Billboard Easy Listening chart in October and November 1962. "Only Love Can Break a Heart" also reached number 16 on the Billboard R&B chart...

From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 02/08/15:
|“If I may be pardoned
for suggesting the obvious, I do so only because the obvious is not
observed in so many instances. The obvious includes four imperatives
with reference to children: Love them, Teach them, Respect them, Pray
with them and for them.”
Thanks so much, Daniel!

Valentine's Day Is About Love Not Lovers
by Dr. Karen Gail Lewis
When you think about Valentine's Day, do you feel pleasure? Grief?
Anger? If you are single, Valentine's Day, along with New Years, are the
two most hated holidays. Too many single women say they "hide out" on
In fact, there is no agreed upon origin. There are numerous stories about
the man Valentine and the holiday of love. They range from Roman days to
honor the god Lupercus, to Emperor Claudius forbidding marriage, to Pope
Gelasium turning a pagan game of romance into a game about saints.
