Since my sister’s health has been declining these past couple of years and depression has totally taken over life, I have been trying very hard to be there for her as much as humanly possible. I bring along with me some light, music and laughter into her darkened world. We all know how animals are so therapeutic and my sister adores all living creatures. Her house always has several dogs and cats, some are strays, some they are fostering and some they have rescued from the pound. I always make sure that I have my pockets full of treats for all the critters that she is currently housing.
She finds some pretty cool pictures and videos online that she likes to send out and share with certain family members and friends. Today she sent me this and I thought that I would play it forward, as they are fond of saying these days.
I really don’t have any words other than what everyone else in this country has said about the horrific scene that took place today at an elementary school in small town Connecticut U.S.A. I just read that the principal of the school, who lost his life today, had just implemented a new security plan within the school where you had to ring the bell, be seen on a monitor and then allowed in. I will leave it at that and simply post these two videos about today’s senseless mass murder and wait until further information becomes available during the investigation of the 2nd worst/deadliest school shooting in America’s history.
A few nights ago on our local PBS channel that I get with my current satellite provider had an awesome show on last night promoting the soul music of the 1970’2. The artists that they had there to perform were right on target, most were the original members, unfortunately some were not. My favorites were The Chi-lites, which prompted me to give a listen to “Have You Seen Her” today, of course via YouTube.com.
While typing a post about paper dolls I got the song made famous back in the 70′s by Marie Osmond “Paper Roses” I haven’t heard this song in so long, so I turned to YouTube.com and had no trouble finding this beautiful song and wanted to share it here while I was at it.
I wonder how long this song will stick in my head. Some times a song will last a week or so. That’s way too long for anything to be bouncing around inside my head! LOL
