Life Is A Gift

Today before you say an unkind word -
Think of someone who can't speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food -
Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife -
Think of someone who ' s crying out to GOD for a companion.

Today before you complain about life -
Think of someone who went too early
Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job -
Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down -
Put a smile on your face and think:
you’re alive and still around.

About Billy Joel and A Lesson In History!

Click Here:   We Didn't Start The Fire <

This song & its title was the answer to a recent Final Jeopardy  -- only one person got it right -- 
the question was " What 1980's song do history teachers praise for its educational value? "
Never could we understand all the references on Billy Joel's song --
fortunately, with this VIDEO, given the picture(s), we now can " see " what our " ears " couldn't.

It's Joel's homage to 40 years of historical headlines since his birth (1949).

Twenty years later, it's amazing what Joel was able to put into music and lyrics lasting only a few minutes.

Here it is, set to pictures.

Turn up volume, sit back and enjoy a review of 50 years of history in less than 3 minutes!
Thanks to Billy Joel and some guy from the University of Chicago with a lot of spare time.
