Winds of March
Winds of March, we welcome you,
There is work for you to do.
Work and play and blow all day,
Blow the winter cold away.
"The March wind roars
like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by.
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then SPRING is here."
It was one of those March Days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold;
when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.
- Charles Dickens - Great Expectations

The March wind is calling,
"Come fly your kite!"
The wind is blowing
With all its might.
The kites are tossing
in the sky.
The wind is calling,
"Come fly up high."

I'm not sure at what age you realize what a gift it is when someone offers
you his or her friendship. Perhaps we know it intuitively as children, when we
enviously eye the cliques that form among our peers--but I doubt it.
I think then we want the companionship but we don't yet understand the gift and
obligations of a good friend. It is not until years later; when we've lost friends or
outgrown them or failed at the attempt to reconnect with an old friend, that we
realize just how valuable a commodity a friend is.
Friends are one of the great wonders of life. They are the gift you never expected,
rarely deserve and always treasure.
Although it is unfortunate that we have lost some of our classmates over the
years...We can help keep their spirit alive by posting a funny story or
a kind remembrance of them.

"When we are connected to others, we
become better people."
-Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
What made us friends so long ago when we first met?
Well, I think I know. The best in me and the best in you
found each other because they knew that always since
life began...our being friends was part of God's plan.
