Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I'm rerunning this classic 1965 Beatles Newsletter theme from only a year ago today because - well, mostly because it's a huge time saver and I'm such a slacker.

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBLLIftWqfQ - Help! - The Beatles


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help!_%28song%29:

"Help!" is a song by The Beatles that served as the title song for both the 1965 film and its soundtrack album. It was also released as a single, and was number one for three weeks in both the United States and the United Kingdom. "Help!" was written primarily by John Lennon, but credited (as were all Beatles songs written by either person) to Lennon/McCartney. Paul McCartney reports that he had a hand in writing the song as well, being called in "to complete it" in a two-hour joint writing session on 4 April 1965 at Lennon's house in Weybridge.[4] He later said that the title was "out of desperation".[5] In 2004, "Help!" was ranked number 29 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.

The documentary series The Beatles Anthology revealed that Lennon wrote the lyrics of the song to express his stress after the Beatles' quick rise to success. "I was fat and depressed and I was crying out for 'Help'," Lennon told Playboy.[6] Writer Ian MacDonald describes the song as the "first crack in the protective shell" Lennon had built around his fragile emotions during the Beatles' rise to fame, and an important milestone in his songwriting style.

YESTERDAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:

From http://www.civilwarinteractive.com/This%20Day/thisday0920.htm - INCLUDING:

Friday, Sept. 20, 1861
HEMP HARVEST HASTENS HIGH HEROICS


For eight days the Confederates of Sterling Price had had a small Federal unit, the “Irish Guard” under Col. James A. Mulligan, surrounded and besieged in Lexington, Mo. Mulligan, hopelessly outnumbered, refused to surrender because he was expecting a relief column to be sent by James Fremont from St. Louis. Fremont, being locked in battle with political enemy Charles Blair Jr., never showed. Price forced the issue today in one of the few Civil War battles settled by hemp. Frontal assaults on the college buildings having failed before, Price’s men today took large round bales of hemp, wetted them down, and rolled the bales forward for protection from Federal fire. It worked. Mulligan surrendered.

Saturday, Sept. 20, 1862
MCCLELLAN MILDNESS MILITARY MADNESS?

There are those who excuse George McClellan’s restraint in the Battle of Antietam on the grounds that he had to hold back substantial reserves as the last defense of Washington in case of a disaster on the field. Today, though, the battle had been over for two days, Lee’s army had its back against the flooded Potomac River and was attempting to move his divisions across it to retreat back to Virginia. McClellan was still facing him, the reserves were still there, and all Little Mac did was send some cavalry to harass him, and kept the reserves in reserve and sat in Sharpsburg. Others noticed this inaction as well: Antietam was McClellan’s last battle.

Sunday, Sept. 20, 1863
CHICKAMAUGA CARNAGE CLIMAX COMES


Union and Confederate forces were lined up at the conclusion of the fighting yesterday, knew where each other were and knew that today would settle the matter. The fighting was essentially toe to toe from one end to the other until, due to a mistaken order, Union troops right in the center under Thomas J. Wood were pulled out of position. In the Confederate center were the forces of James Longstreet, who lost no time exploiting this opening. The Union line nearly dissolved, except for Gen. George Henry Thomas. Gathering his men on a rise called Snodgrass Hill they formed a defensive line that held all afternoon, getting for Thomas the nickname “The Rock of Chickamauga.” After dark, under orders, Thomas withdrew to rejoin the rest of the Union army in Chattanooga. Braxton Bragg had won his battle.

Tuesday, Sept. 20, 1864
EARLY’S ELEMENTS ENGINEER ESCAPE

Phil Sheridan finally had Jubal Early’s Cavalry force on the run in the Shenandoah Valley. Following the Battle of Winchester yesterday, Early was moving “up” the valley, which due to the direction the river flows, meant moving South. The pursuit lasted through Middleton, Va., passing through Strasburg until they reached a spot called Fisher’s Hill. There Early’s men stopped. In response, Sheridan ordered his men, who were still north of the town, to halt and begin to entrench. In the early days of the war it would have been unheard of for proud cavaliers of the Cavalry to dig ditches to fight in, but there had been some changes made.


TODAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:

From http://www.civilwarinteractive.com/This%20Day/thisday0921.htm - INCLUDING:

Saturday, Sept. 21, 1861
COMMAND, CONTROL CONCERNS CLARIFIED

As little military action took place on this day, it may help the reader to take note of who was where preparing to do what at this time near the end of the first summer of the War. Robert E Lee, CSA is in the Kanawha Valley of what (at this time) is still western Virginia, around Big Sewell Mountain. Not too far away from Lee was William Rosecrans, USA, with an army of his own. The two would soon clash. Gen Albert Sidney Johnston issued a call to his state of Tennessee, requesting the recruitment of 30,000 men. Assisting him was the only ordained bishop to gain the rank of General in either army, Leonidas K. Polk, also a Tennessean and distant relative of President James Polk. Gen. O. M. Mitchel assumed command today of the Federal Department of Ohio, a huge territory covering areas from western Pennsylvania to Illinois.

Sunday, Sept. 21, 1862
ACHING AGONY IN ANTIETAM AFTERMATH

Despite the best efforts of Jonathan Letterman, medical director of the Army of the Potomac, to secure buildings for use as hospital areas before the battle, the carnage had been on a scale to render all attempts at preparation futile. Today, four days after the battle itself, wounded were still being found on the battlefield, and those who had received immediate treatment were in almost as bad condition. A sergeant of the 15th Mass., who had had his leg amputated the night of the 17th, wrote in his diary today, “I did not know [I] was capable of enduring so much pain. How very meager are accommodations--no chamber pots & nobody to find or rig up one. How ludicrous for 2 score amputated men to help themselves with diarrhea.”

Monday, Sept. 21, 1863
CHICKAMAUGA CONFLICT CONFUSEDLY CONCLUDED


Gen. George Thomas, the “Rock of Chickamauga” as he would come to be known as soon as the newspaper stories were written up, continued in that role today. Having held the core of the Union army together yesterday on Snodgrass Hill, he had retired towards Chattanooga after nightfall. Today he again held the defenses of the city with the remnants of the Army of the Cumberland. His commanding officer, Rosecrans, was frantically preparing the city for siege. Bragg, commanding the Confederates, issued orders for a pursuit before the defenses could be completed, then cancelled the order. Yet another chance to annihilate the Union forces was lost.

Wednesday, Sept. 21, 1864
SHERIDAN SHAKES STRASBURG SEVERELY

The pursuit of Jubal Early “up” the Shenandoah Valley continued today. Having resisted the move back to Lee in Petersburg for as long as he could, Early now was in a desperate race to do exactly that. The impediment was Phil Sheridan, who accomplished two things today. First, there was the fighting: Early had fortified Fisher’s Hill, and Sheridan had to advance slowly there. Additional actions took place at Strasburg, and at Front Royal, where the Confederates managed to keep Sheridan’s men out of the Luray Valley for one more day. After nightfall, Sheridan detached Gen. Crook and one corps to move around the left flank of Early.


  From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 09/19/11 - "9/11 Boatlift":
 
Something that was never noted in history—a worthwhile look at how when we all pitch in, we can accomplish a great deal. Something our politicians should consider.

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST MOVING STORIES EVER---WELL DONE AND NARRATED BY TOM HANKS. SOMETHING WE HAVE NEVER SEEN ON TV ABOUT 9/11

An amazing story and until I watched this I never knew anything about it.

http://www.smartplanet.com/blog/cities/moving-documentary-of-911-evacuation-by-boat-shows-resilience-of-cities/881?tag=nl.e660

   WOWZERONI! This is such an amazing story!   I was vaguely aware of it shortly after it happened, but learned much more in May of 2007.   That was when my beautiful cousin        Cheryl White Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64 - of VA) took       Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC),        Adrienne (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - of NC - currently in UT preparing to serve an 18-month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in WA), and me on that incredible visit to New York City - which was one of the highest points in my life. 

   As we were taking the    Circle Line cruise around Manhattan Island,   the tour guide (himself a participant in the Boatlift) told us this story in some detail.  I was not aware of the documentary, though. 

   Thank you so much for sharing it with us, Norris Sweetie!

From http://www.SelfGrowth.com - 09/19/11 - "Forgiveness":

What Is Radical Forgiveness?

By Colin Tipping


Everyone agrees that forgiveness is a good thing to do. Besides the fact that holding onto anger and resentment makes you feel horrible and robs you of your life force energy, the link between high blood pressure and other health issues is well proven. Moreover, the research shows that there is a direct link between having a resistance to forgiveness and the formation of cancer. So, people are now realizing that forgiveness is very essential to one's health and well being.

However, knowing that we should forgive is one thing. Actually doing it is quite another. And there is precious little out there to show us how. It's all very well people saying you should forgive, but the question remains. How? Some say it's simply a matter of making the choice to 'let it go'. But that ignores the fact that forgiveness is not achieved in the intellect; it is a matter for the heart. Anger, resentment and hurt are emotions and are not subject to rational choice or edicts. That only creates denial.

Anyone who has tried to forgive this way will tell you that it is extremely difficult, and the perception is that you have to be a special sort of person to be able to do it. A saint almost. Very few people actually manage it. They think they have forgiven until they get triggered and up it all comes again. It can take decades.

As a therapist working in the 90's I worked with people who had cancer. Having learned about the link between lack of forgiveness and cancer, I wanted to teach them how to forgive as part of their therapy. But, obviously, conventional forgiveness wasn't going to help them, so I had to find another way.

Previous to this, while being called upon to help large numbers of clients who were suffering great pain and anguish due to a relationship breakdown or crisis, I noticed that many of them had a pattern of repeating the same or similar scenarios in every relationship they had. This indicated to me that in each case something was occurring for them that was neither visible nor obvious and that, at some level, there might be a purpose in what was happening. I reasoned that if this was true, then forgiveness might occur automatically simply by recognizing this as a possibility. This was how Radical Forgiveness was born.

In 1997 I wrote the book, Radical Forgiveness, and have since helped thousands of people heal their relationships using this method, not to mention helping people with cancer heal their lives and possible extend their lives or prevent a recurrence.

Radical Forgiveness Comprises Five Stages:
1. Telling the (victim) story.
2. Feeling the Feelings.
3. Collapsing the Story.
4. Reframing the Story.
5. Integrating the New Story.

The first three are more or less the same as conventional forgiveness. We first explain how we were victimized while becoming present to our feelings about what happened. Then we do our best to bring to the situation understanding, compassion and empathy for the person we feel hurt us, and perhaps even imagine walking in their shoes for a while.

We also try to strip away all the interpretations, judgments and expectations that we had added to the situation and which had served only to increase our suffering. That would at least leave us with the actual facts of what happened or how things really were at the time.

But, even so, we still haven't let the person off the hook. We still hold that he or she (or it if it was some kind of organization) did something wrong or bad to us. We haven't really let go of our victimhood and therein lies the limitation of conventional forgiveness. It cannot free us from victim consciousness. Radical Forgiveness, on the other hand, is designed to do just that and is the purpose behind the fourth and fifth stages. In those stages we are invited to try 'reframing' our story -- that is, to see it through fresh eyes.

Stage Four asks us to be willing to look at the possibility that there might be divine purpose behind everything that happens, and that what happened to make us feel victimized was actually what our 'spiritual self' had wanted for its growth, and that our spiritual intelligence had created the situation for us. In other words, we need to entertain the possibility that things don't so much happen TO us but FOR us -- at the spiritual level, that is. In the case of parents, we are asked to wonder whether we actually chose them before our incarnation and contracted with them to give us particular experiences during our childhoods. We may well have chosen our life partners in the same way and contracted with them too. It's possible.

Automatic and Immediate
In simply opening up to this interpretation, without, I hasten to add, needing to believe in it or understand it, the energy that had, up to that point, been tied up in the story is automatically and immediately released. When we become willing to embrace this possibility, not only do we feel immediate peace around the situation but every aspect of our lives begins to change. This is because we begin to see everything else as being divinely inspired too, even when to our human eyes it looks terrible.

The Tools
Coming back now to the question of 'how,' which still remains to be answered, Radical Forgiveness provides a number of simple tools that seem, in some unexplainable way, to help us move the old victim energy out of our bodies almost immediately and with minimal effort. The tools help us tune in to our Spiritual Intelligence and reconnect us with the truth of who we are, why we are here and what the true meaning of our experience really is. Once we do that, it clears the way for complete forgiveness to occur and brings us to the point of knowing that nothing 'wrong or right' happened. Once we get there, we begin to realize that, in truth, there is nothing to forgive. With Radical Forgiveness, therefore, there is no victim consciousness remaining.

The tools are simple worksheets, an audio version of the worksheet called The 13 Steps to Radical Forgiveness, a game and some online programs. All these tools can be obtained from our website, http://www.radicalforgiveness.com. Many are free downloads. It is in the execution of these processes that the fifth step, integration of the new story (the reframed version), actually occurs.

Radical Self-Forgiveness
We also have a similar set of tools for Radical Self Forgiveness, including a three-part Online Program. We find that most people find self-forgiveness a lot more difficult that forgiving others but the fact is that the tools for both Radical Self-Forgiveness and Radical Self-Acceptance work just as well as the Radical Forgiveness tools. However one that I find very helpful and have featured in my latest book, Radical Self-Forgiveness, The Direct Path to True Self-Acceptance is the Three Letter Process.

Texan (boasting): Well, on my lot, it takes me all day to drive completely around my property!"

Mainer: "Yep, I got one of them trucks too."

, 1965

Recorded by The Beatles, 1965


Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I've never done before.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these daya are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh.
