Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
In the Year I Was Born
Got this at Chaosdaily's
|In 1963 (the year you were born)|
|Lyndon B. Johnson becomes president of the US|
The atomic powered submarine, Thresher, sinks in the North Atlantic killing 129
A civil rights rally held by 200,000 blacks and whites, features Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech
President John F. Kennedy is assassinated as he rides in a motorcade through downtown Dallas
Betty Friedan publishes The Feminine Mystique, launching a middle-class feminist movement
Michael Jordan, Quentin Tarantino, Conan O'Brien, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt are born
Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series
Chicago Bears win the NFL championship
Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup
The Beatles receive their first #1 hit single, when "Please Please Me" tops the charts in the UK
Astroboy (known as Mighty Atom in Japanese) Japan's first ever anime was launched

All that's kind of groovy, though I couldn't give a whit about the Stanley Cup etc, and though it is great to know that Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt are the same age as me, aren't there any famous women born that year? This is a real boy-heavy year except for the Betty Friedan thing.
Well, back to work. tah!
