A Time of Hope and Promise

The Impossible Dream (lyrics by Joe Darion)
To dream the impossible dream

To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my [our] quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man [sic], scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

RM and RB, birth is such a wonderful time, a time of hope and promise. IT is a time when anything is possible, when the world lies ahead. The impossible can be not only dreamt but done, the stars are there to be grabbed. RB, as your life intertwines with many others over the years, may you know the hope and promise that can never be defeated. RM, as you grow with RB, may you be reminded of that childhood time when we all believed that nothing was impossible. And may we all be willing to reach the unreachable star. Amen.
