|"I Believe" is the name of a
Jimmy Shirl and
Al Stillman in
I Believe was commissioned and introduced by Jane Froman on her television show, and became the first hit song ever introduced on TV. Froman, troubled by the uprising of the Korean conflict in 1952 so soon after World War II, asked Drake, Graham, Shirl and Stillman to compose a song that would offer hope and faith to the populace. In addition to Froman, "I Believe" has been recorded by many others, and has become both a popular and religious standard.
Frankie Laine had the big hit version of the song, which still holds the record for the most weeks spent at number one in the UK Singles Chart. However, that total of 18 weeks was not consecutive, as the hit had three separate periods at number one in the UK. For comparison the longest consecutive period at number one in the UK was 16 weeks by Bryan Adams with "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" (1991), whilst Wet Wet Wet spent 15 consecutive weeks there in 1994 with "Love Is All Around".

From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 07/04/17:
In celebration of Independence Day,
we remember a little known hero of the American Revolutionary War,
16-year-old Sybil Ludington. At approximately 9 pm on April 26, 1777, Sybil,
the eldest daughter of Colonel Henry Ludington, climbed onto her horse and
proceeded to ride 40 miles in order to muster local militia troops in
response to a British attack on the town of Danbury, Connecticut -- covering
twice the distance that Paul Revere rode during his famous midnight ride.
To introduce your children to Sybil's story, we highly recommend "Sybil’s Night Ride," a picture book for children 4 to 8 (http://www.amightygirl.com/sybil-s-night-ride), "Sybil Ludington’s Midnight Ride," an early chapter book for ages 6 to 9 (http://www.amightygirl.com/sybil-ludington-s-midnight-ride), and "Sybil Ludington: Revolutionary War Rider" for ages 8 to 12 (http://www.amightygirl.com/sybil-ludington-war-rider).
She is also one of 20 women
featured in the fascinating book, "Women Heroes of the American
Revolution: 20 Stories of Espionage Sabotage, Defiance, and Rescue,"
recommended for teens and adults alike, 13 and up, at
Thank you so much for sharing this, Domi!
