    Hundreds of hurting people visit here every day, most of whom are searching for comfort after loss. Please reach out for emotional support as you begin the healing process. Be patient with yourself. Allow yourself to grieve. Let it out. May God be with you.

    “I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot
    do everything, but still I can do something.
    I will not refuse to do the something I can do.”

    American Pie

    | February 26, 2012

    This has been of my favorite songs for many, many years. It has always been very obvious to me that it was never just about Buddy Holly. That’s why I liked it.  Beck’s take is interesting… See the two videos below the song video.

    Don McLean- American Pie (with Lyrics)

    Do You Know the Full Story Behind ‘The Day the Music Died?‘ Here’s Beck’s Version

    American Pie ~ Don McLean

    A long long time ago
    I can still remember
    How that music used to make me smile
    And I knew if I had my chance
    That I could make those people dance
    And maybe they’d be happy for a while
    But February made me shiver
    With every paper I’d deliver
    Bad news on the doorstep
    I couldn’t take one more step
    I can’t remember if I cried
    When I read about his widowed bride
    But something touched me deep inside
    The day the music died

    So bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
    Singing this’ll be the day that I die
    This’ll be the day that I die

    Did you write the book of love
    And do you have faith in God above
    If the Bible tells you so?
    Now do you believe in rock and roll?
    Can music save your mortal soul?
    And can you teach me how to dance real slow?
    Well, I know that you’re in love with him
    ’cause I saw you dancing in the gym
    You both kicked off your shoes
    Man, I dig those rhythm and blues
    I was a lonely teenage broncin’ buck
    With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
    But I knew I was out of luck
    The day the music died
    I started singing

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
    Singing this’ll be the day that I die
    This’ll be the day that I die

    Now, for ten years we’ve been on our own
    And moss grows fat on a rolling stone
    But that’s not how it used to be
    When the Jester sang for the king and queen
    In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
    And a voice that came from you and me
    Oh and while the king was looking down
    The Jester stole his thorny crown
    The courtroom was adjourned
    No verdict was returned
    And while Lenin read a book on Marx
    The quartet practiced in the park
    And we sang dirges in the dark
    The day the music died
    We were singing

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
    Singing this’ll be the day that I die
    This’ll be the day that I die

    Helter skelter in a summer swelter
    The birds flew off with a fallout shelter
    Eight miles high and falling fast
    Landed foul on the grass
    The players tried for a forward pass
    With the Jester on the sidelines in a cast
    Now the half-time air was sweet perfume
    While sergeants played a marching tune
    We all got up to dance
    Oh, but we never got the chance
    ‘Cause the players tried to take the field
    The marching band refused to yield
    Do you recall what was revealed
    The day the music died?
    We started singing

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
    Singing this’ll be the day that I die
    This’ll be the day that I die

    Oh, and there we were all in one place
    A generation lost in space
    With no time left to start again
    So come on Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
    Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
    ‘Cause fire is the devil’s only friend
    And as I watched him on the stage
    My hands were clenched in fists of rage
    No angel born in hell
    Could break that Satan’s spell
    And as the flames climbed high into the night
    To light the sacrificial rite
    I saw Satan laughing with delight
    The day the music died
    He was singing

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
    Singing this’ll be the day that I die
    This’ll be the day that I die

    I met a girl who sang the blues
    And I asked her for some happy news
    But she just smiled and turned away
    I went down to the sacred store
    Where I’d heard the music years before
    But the man there said the music wouldn’t play
    And in the streets the children screamed
    The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed
    But not a word was spoken
    The church bells all were broken
    And the three men I admire most
    The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
    They caught the last train for the coast
    The day the music died
    And they were singing

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
    Singing this’ll be the day that I die
    This’ll be the day that I die
    they were singing

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
    Singing this’ll be the day that I die

    Muse – Uprising (HQ)

    Uprising ~ Muse

    The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
    The transmissions will resume
    They’ll try to push drugs
    Keep us all dumbed down and hope that
    We will never see the truth around
    (So come on!)

    Another promise, another scene, another
    A package not to keep us trapped in greed
    With all the green belts wrapped around our minds

    And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
    (So come on!)

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious

    Interchanging mind control
    Come let the revolution take its toll if you could
    Flick a switch and open your third eye, you’d see that
    We should never be afraid to die
    (So come on!)

    Rise up and take the power back, it’s time that
    The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
    Their time is coming to an end
    We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious

    Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!
    Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious

    Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!
    Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!

    I love this. Gov. Scott Walker calling it like it is. A Christmas tree. Reminds me of the ridiculous argument that spanking is not the same as beating.

    Inside N. Korea’s Prisons: Moms Kill Children to Survive
    http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/world/2011/October/Witness-to-Evil-Mothers-Kill-Children-to-Survive/

    “One time a mother put her 9-year-old daughter in this big cast iron pot and boiled her,” she said. “She was too big for the pot so the mother had to chop her legs and head to fit the body in the pot.”

    “On another occasion, a lady killed her 16-year-old son, chopped him into pieces and took him to a butcher shop to get some corn in exchange,” she said…

    “Every day people are dying. Every day people are killing each other,” she said. “I am living proof that there are no human rights in North Korea.”

    This is the only day since we were married that I’d like to go to work instead of Derek. (Well not REALLY!) But it sure would be awesome to listen to The Donald and Rudy Giuliani today. Soooo jealous! I hope Trump endorses Herman Cain now that Palin is out of the picture. It’s all about the endorsements this election. Palin, Christie, Trump, Rubio, etc. will play a big part.

    Soooo Excited!! GBTV Begins TODAY!!!
