07/15/14 - NNHS Newsletter - You Send Me
“Love one another and you will be happy.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Mmmm... Today's Golden Oldie always makes me want to dance.
BONUS - You Send Me - Sam Cooke
"You Send Me" is a 1957 single by R&B singer-songwriter Sam Cooke. The song was his first secular single released through Keen Records, an imprint of RCA Victor Records. (His first non-gospel single, "Lovable," was released earlier that year under a pseudonym.) Released in September 1957, the record became an instant hit, topping the charts on both the Billboard Pop and R&B singles charts. The record established Cooke as a mainstream R&B singer, apart from his gospel roots.
At the same time a rendition was also released by Teresa Brewer, which reached #8 on the pop charts.
Since its release, the song has become a landmark record of the soul genre, which Cooke helped create. It was named as one of the 500 most important rock and roll recordings by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In 2005, the song was voted #115 by representatives of the music industry and press in Rolling Stone magazine's The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 07/14/14 - "Vietnam Wall.... anyone you know?":
is really sobering. Click on the link and find the city you went to high
school and look at the names.
Click on the name and it will give details of the death.
First click on a state. When it
opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear.
I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio's and other information on our lost heroes. Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site.
Pass the link on to others, as many knew wonderful people whose names are listed.
This is definitely heartrending, Wayne! Thank you so much for sharing it with us again!

|Early one morning, a mother went in to wake up her son. "Wake up,
son. It's time to go to school!"
"But why, Mom? I don't want to go."
"Give me two reasons why you don't want to go."
"Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too!"
"Oh, that's no reason not to go to school. Come on now and get ready."
"Give me two reasons why I should go to school."
"Well, for one, you're 52 years old. And for another, you're the Principal!"
