When Aretha sang, our souls answered.

The 60's were tough times as well 
as amazing times in America.
Lots was striving for expression. 

There was violent push-back too,
War at home and abroad. 

Life was not safe for many people.
But when Aretha sang, we felt safe;  
We felt like the Good was 
always on the move.
The Good was winning.

Thank You Aretha Franklin. 
Your Life, Your Faith
Your Influence on America,
the World, on all of us.

Thank you for delivering us
from fear to Love & Faith.
Faith in what is Right, 
Faith in the future.
Thank You Gift of God

"The meaning of life
is to find your gift. 
The purpose of life 
is to give it away."

"Nothing is more beautiful 
than a smile that has 
struggled through tears."

I like how the fierce owl decoy 
seems to be threatening 
to devour the tiny aircraft

"Love is the the translator 
of the language of life. 
Learn it, speak it, teach it, 
so all may understand."
