Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

William Waits

lyrics: William Waits

William waits

Scanning the sky for a shooting star

And he
Stands at the gate

Saves every wish for her to make

And William dreams

His heart convinced his head of the fantasy

When she says

Can you make me see

Just how much you mean to me

~Chorus~
And he says I am
Your Everyman

I am the one who waits for you

And he says
I am

Your Everyman

Tell me what else can I do


She takes the stand
Accused of slamming in the walls that she made

She says

You can hold my hand

But don't you dare get in my way


She pleads the fifth

The Truth can not be help in words

And he stands to defend her

To defend the truth, that he just heard


~Chorus~


Now William waits
Holding the rose despite its thorns
And she turns away

Saying I think its getting late


And William dreams

His heart convinced his head of the fantasy

When she says

Can you make me see

Just what you mean to me


~Chorus~


Now William Waits
