I Stand Before You by Roger Jaco Robicheau

Associated Student Government community relations committee member Mike Morgan (right) brought up the idea of garage sale where off campus students could sell goods before the school year ends. About 20 students attended the garage sale on Sunday.



I Stand Before You
I stand before you all today
But not one eye can see my way
My time arrived, to leave this earth
A fact so planned, to every birth
It happened where I had to go
My torch for life was so aglow
I transferred while in uniform
Protecting freedom, through a storm
Should I resent I died for you
Not on my life, red white and blue
Please help my family through each day
Tell all my friends, try not to stray
And of the country I did love
Do think of me, through God above
Your memories, brought forth this day
Send love to us, who could not stay

Piano Memories by Rainer Maria Rilke - 1875-1926

Piano Practice

The summer hums. The afternoon fatigues;
she breathed her crisp white dress distractedly
and put into it that sharply etched etude
her impatience for a reality

hat could come: tomorrow, this evening--,
that perhaps was there, was just kept hidden;
and at the window, tall and having everything,
she suddenly could feel the pampered park.

With that she broke off; gazed outside, locked
her hands together; wished for a long book--
and in a burst of anger shoved back
the jasmine scent. She found it sickened her.

have A Beautiful mother's Day by Randy Noah Freeman




Mom, over the years,
I've watched
the wonderful ways
you've made life special
for our family...
the moments of love
and laughter,
the traditions
and memories
we'll carry with us
throughout our lives.
But most of all
I've watched the way
you've shown us
the true meaning of love
in everything you do.

Happy Mother's Day
*
Only a mother
can communicate love
without saying a word.
For the many unspoken ways
that you share your love
in our family,
I hope you know that you're
loved and appreciated
beyond measure.

Have a Beautiful

Mother's Day

Gaza (Palestine) by Aggelos Honig Katsaggelos



Stop the killing
Gaza is bleeding
She's bleeding dying kids
She's bleeding mothers' tears

Where is the leniency?
Let's overcome the inhumanity
Let's live with mercy
Let's have a life without brutality

Now we know the truth
We know the fake peace
We see the lies that devils try to smooth
We will fight for peace

Peace is what we are looking for
Peace screams and wails with every breath
Peace is the world cure
