Glory of Love

“Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours For one lone soul another lonely soul,
Each choosing each through all the weary hours, And meeting strangely at one sudden goal,
Then blend they, like green leaves with golden flowers, Into one beautiful and perfect whole;
And life's long night is ended, and the way Lies open onward to eternal day.”

- Sir Edwin Arnold, “Destiny”
(10 June 1832 - 24 Mar 1904)

    From Alan Goldberg (NNHS / Ferguson HS - '67) of NC - "Change of E-MAIL address":

Carol ,

If you could change my E-MAIL address to _______________________ I sure would appreciate it. My school E-mail won't let me access some of your websites. Thanks again, and look forward to keeping up .

P. S. my sisters Rona 1960 and Elinor 1963 both graduated from Newport News HIGH. I  would have, but my family moved from Stuart Gardens after my Junior year.

   Thanks, Alan! I have you all switched now! I remember both of your sisters quite well. Please give them my regards. Just don't be surprised when they say, "WHO?!?" I was a supremely forgettable nebbish in high school.

  From Fuzzy Turner ('63) of NC - 11/02/09 - "When the music stopped...":

From "Soldiers" - 05/14/07:

I recently attended a showing of "Spiderman 3" here at LSA Anaconda. We have a large auditorium we use for movies as well as memorial services and other large gatherings. As is the custom back in the States, we stood and snapped to attention when the National Anthem began before the main feature. All was going as planned until about three-quarters of the way through the National Anthem the music stopped.

Now, what would happen if this occurred with 1,000 18-22 year-olds back in the States? I imagine there would be hoots, catcalls, laughter, a few rude comments, and everyone would sit down and call for a movie. Of course, that is, if they had stood for the National Anthem in the first place.

Here, the 1,000 Soldiers continued to stand at attention, eyes fixed forward.

The music started again. The Soldiers continued to quietly stand at attention. And again, at the same point, the music stopped. What would you expect to happen? Even here I would imagine laughter as everyone sat down and expected the movie to start.

Here, you could have heard a pin drop. Every Soldier stood at attention. Suddenly there was a lone voice, then a dozen, and quickly the room was filled with the voices of a thousand Soldiers:

And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,

o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

It was the most inspiring moment I have had here in Iraq. I wanted you to know what kind of Soldiers are serving you here.

   Thank you so much, Fuzzy! I had not read this before!

From ArcaMax Jokes - 11/02/09:

Reality T.V.

I realized that my five-year-old grandson had been watching too many reality TV shows the day we attended a relative's wedding. As the four bridesmaids walked down the aisle toward the front of the church, he turned to me and asked, "Is this where the groom decides which one he wants to marry?"


Lost Wife

The man approached the very beautiful woman in the large supermarket and said, "You know I've lost my wife here in the supermarket. Can you talk to me for a couple of minutes?"

"Why?" asked the woman

"Because every time I talk to a beautiful woman my wife appears out of nowhere."

Glory of Love

Written by Peter Cetera, David Foster and Cetera's wife at the time, Diane Nini

Recorded by Peter Cetera, 1986
(b. 13 Sept 1944)

Tonight it's very clear
As we're both lying here
There're so many things I want to say
I will always love you
I would never leave you alone

Sometimes I just forget
Say things I might regret
It breaks my heart to see you crying
I don't wanna lose you
I could never make it alone

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

You'll keep me standing tall
You'll help me through it all
I'm always strong when you're beside me
I have always needed you
I could never make it alone

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you've been dreaming of
We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

Just like a knight in shining armor
From a long time ago
Just in time I will save the day
Take you to my castle far away

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
We're gonna live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

We did it all for love
We did it all for love
We did it all for love
We did it all for love
