Hi everybody

When I go into Chat at night I listen to Netscape Radio ... The Showtunes station. The other night they were playing a song from the musical Ragtime I have heard it a few times since then and I really think that it speeks about what I want to accomplish.

"Make Them Hear You"

From the Musical Ragtime

Music by Stephen Flaherty Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens

Go out and tell your story
Let it echo far and wide
Make them hear you
Make them Hear you

How justice was our our battle
And how justice was denied
Make them hear you
Make them hear you

And say to those who blame us
For the way we chose to fight
That sometimes there are battles
Which are more than black or white

And I could not put down my sword
When Justice was my right
Make them hear you
Make them hear you

My path may lead to heaven or hell
And God will say what's best
But one thing he will never say
Is that I went quietly to my rest.

Go out and tell your story
To your daughters and your sons
Make them hear you
Make them hear you

And tell them in our struggle
We were not the only ones
Make them hear you
Make them hear you

Proclaim it from your pulpit
In your classroom, With your pen
Teach every child to RAISE his voice
And then my brothers THEN

Will justice be demanded
By ten million Righteous men
Make them hear you
When they hear you
I'll be near you ...... AGAIN

From "Lion King" "The Circle of Life" with Lyrics

Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba [Here comes a lion, Father]
Sithi uhm ingonyama [Oh yes, it's a lion] (Repeat)

Siyo Nqoba [We're going to conquer]
Ingonyama nengw' enamabala [As lion and a leopard come to this open place]

I think of Lightfang, Bearer of the Sword of Light when I read this one...

Thanks Chey

It is better to be Dragon Master than Dragon Slayer. Some Dragons are meant to be mastered, others meant to be slain. Odin, Great Spirit, God, grant me the wisdom to know the difference. "May the Valar guide and bless you on your path under the sky"
