On the Other Hand
“While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free
Stephen R. Covey
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I don't think we've used a good ol' country song lately; on the other hand, I could be wrong.....
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJgV-TGkFeU - On the Other Hand - Randy Travis, 1985
|"On the Other Hand" is a country music song written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz. First recorded by Keith Whitley on his 1985 album L.A. to Miami, it was later released by Randy Travis as the lead-off single to his album Storms of Life, and it peaked at #67 in the United States. However, it was re-released in April 1986 after the song "1982" peaked, and the re-release was his first number-one hit in both the United States and Canada.|

200 YEARS AGO TODAY:
|June 15, 1816 - At the Villa Diodati in the village of Cologny, Switzerland, Lord Byron read Fantasmagoriana to his four house guests — Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley, Claire Clairmont, and John Polidori — and challenged each guest to write a ghost story, which culminated in Mary Shelley writing the novel Frankenstein, John Polidori writing the short story The Vampyre, and Byron writing an unfinished vampire novel, Fragment of a Novel, and the poem Darkness.|
100 YEARS AGO TODAY:
|June 15, 1916 - U.S. President Woodrow Wilson signed a bill incorporating the Boy Scouts of America, making them the only American youth organization with a federal charter.|
THIS DAY IN WWII:
|June 15, 1940 - The French fortress of Verdun was captured by
June 15, 1942 - The US
Army activated the Hampton Roads Port of Embarkation (HRPE).
Until late 1945, the Army ran the port operations in Newport News and
Norfolk. HRPE was the third most active of eight ports taken over by the
government during WWII. Only New York and San Francisco processed more
service personnel, coming and going. When HRPE was shut down, a total of
1,687,000 people had passed through the HRPE port area.
THIS DAY IN 1966:
upward, look upward, reach outward, press forward.”
