HEROS

This song by Bowie gives me shivers. Especially this week. Take a look at the lyrics from the last half of the song.

I
I will be king
And you
You will be queen
Though nothing
Will drive them away
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be us
Just for one day

I
I can remember
Standing
By the wall
And the guns
Shot above our heads
And we kissed
As though nothing could fall
And the shame
Was on the other side
Oh we can beat them
For ever and ever
Then we can be Heroes
Just for one day

We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be Heroes
We're nothing
And nothing will help us
Maybe we're lying
Then you better not stay
But we could be safer
Just for one day

This has always been one of my most favorite songs in the Universe. Like I said, "This man is a genius, born before his time"! Yep, he is truly a visionary! How prophetic, and relevant to today! This song has always reached the deepest reccesses of my soul. I saw Father Francis has a hero, always touching the lives of the unfortunate, and raising them up with his help. I used to play this song full blast, when I vaccumed the church. Father Francis would do this cute little dance with his habit on. He also liked the Cars. But when this song played, he too would say, "What a beautiful song"!
When the other monks would see him, they would laugh and say, "45 years of training, down the tubes"! lol lol :)
