Welcome to Life 101

Got Milk of Human Kindness?

9/11 Commemoration

As our hearts are tearfully filled with memories of those who lost their lives September 11, 2001, let us also never forget the bravery and compassion shown that day; and may we continue to forever embrace and extend kind words and actions to those left behind and still mourning, those injured and still suffering. Let us Thank all Military Personnel as we also remember and honor those who have lots their lives or have been injured in the process of defending our Country. And may we as a Nation United rise above this tragedy to not judge nor hate the majority, because of the actions of a few.


"Will hate bring it all back? Will it bring back the innocence? The sense of security? Will it bring back the husbands and wives and sons and daughters? Will hate make us better than those who hate us? Or merely bring us closer to them. Will hate help us destroy our enemies? Or will it laugh as we destroy ourselves. There are those who say we don’t know who our enemy is. But we do. Our enemy is a neighborhood Mosque defaced by vandals. An Arab-American storekeeper in fear of reprisal. A scared Muslim child bullied because she is different. Hate is our enemy, and when we start to hate other Americans, we have lost everything. Hate has taken enough from us already. Don’t let it take you."

Ferguson Tribute Elvis Presley

In The Ghetto (Dirk Parker) - Ferguson Tribute - Elvis Presley (LIVE)

We are losing our young brothers and sisters too often. We all have the opportunity and responsibility to lift each other up in hard times and through hard circumstances to live long, meaningful lives. 


Regardless of the circumstances in Ferguson, or the circumstances this song describes, we can help each other and lift each other up.

Labor Day


Foremost to our Military, all those deployed... Thank You. To all in the work force, those actually in labor :), to the many unemployed waiting to labor; during this holiday of sales – picnics - BBQs - and gathering abouts:

Let's remember all those throughout history who have made this Holiday possible!



Dropkick Murphys Workers Song Lyrics


Yeh, this one's for the workers who toil night and day

By hand and by brain to earn your pay
Who for centuries long past for no more than your bread
Have bled for your countries and counted your dead

In the factories and mills, in the shipyards and mines
We've often been told to keep up with the times
For our skills are not needed, they've streamlined the job
And with sliderule and stopwatch our pride they have robbed

CHORUS:

We're the first ones to starve (start with) the first ones to die
The first ones in line for that pie-in-the-sky
And we're always the last when (they gravyish it out) the cream is shared out
For the worker is working when the fat cat's about

And when the sky darkens and the prospect is war
Who's given a gun and then pushed to the fore
And expected to die for the land of our birth
Though we've never owned one lousy handful of earth?

CHORUS (x3)

All of these things the worker has done
From tilling the fields to carrying the gun
We've been yoked to the plough since time first began
And always expected to carry the can

Hallelujah


Dirk Parker (member of Rechoired, an a capella group) singing Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen at Brigham Young University - Idaho's New Student Talent Show.


Dirk Parker has been performing music for over ten years. While he is classified as a high baritone, his range is seemingly endless. If he is not belting a tenor high C, he is most likely preparing a gourmet meal or showcasing his skills on the basketball court. Dirk served in the Washington D.C. North Mission and the Washington, Tacoma Mission.
