Anything's Possible - John Lang

Johnny you won’t be nothing unless you do what you’re told”,
Study medicine or study law,
And please put away the guitar,
The best you’ll ever be is a local star at the local bar,”

This was what he had been told in the days of old.

But,

“I went and did it anyway,
Family helping all the way,
Now I’m here today,
5 records later,
So you can hear me say,….…..you can succeed,
It might not be easy,
But anything’s possible, “

 

Never Give Up on a Dream

This video is a tribute to Terry Fox.

Terry’s spirit is something that is made of the stuff of legends. He was a great sportsman, good in cross country running and also in swimming.

Unfortunately, when Terry was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) and forced to have his right leg amputated 15 centimetres (six inches) above the knee in 1977.

Marathon of Hope - He had a Dream and A Vision!

Instead feeling down, disheartened and hopeless, Terry started working on his new prosthetic leg. Though his family wept, he felt blessed on having beaten cancer. (He thought he had.)

Terry Fox had a dream. And the dream was to collect one dollar from every Canadian by running across Canada and then use this money for research in a bid to cure or arrest cancer.

Fox sent letters to various companies soliciting their sponsorship. The final sentence of his letter was: “…I’m not saying that this will initiate any kind of definitive answer or cure to cancer, but I believe in miracles. I have to.”

With dogged determination that was characteristic of him, Terry started his marathon in the fall of 1979. When the news of Terry spread across Canada like wildfire, funds started pouring in. He met the Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. He helped kick start a CFL game between Ottawa and Saskatchewan, kicking the opening ball. There were many other interesting events along the run.

Terry was half way cross the journey when he said he felt as if he’d caught a cold. Doctors said that cancer had invaded his lungs. So, Terry arranged a press conference and told reporters he had to go home. He had run 3,339 miles (5,376 km).

Terry’s health gradually worsened and by June 28, 1981 Terry Fox died, with his family beside him. By then, Terry Fox had raised $24.17 million, equaling Canada’s population of 24.1 million at the time. This was the dream for which he set about in the beginning.

“How many people do something they really believe in? I just wish people would realize that anything’s possible if you try. Dreams are made if people try.” …..Terry Fox

 

I Get Knocked Down

“I get knocked down, but I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down
I get knocked down, but I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down”

Life is What You Make It

 

Lifes what you make it, so lets's make it rock - you decide! 
Don’t let no small frustration Ever bring you down No no no no 
Just take a situation And turn it all around 
With a new attitude everything can change 
Make it how you want it to be  
 

ALl STAR - with Lyrics -You'll never shine if you don't glow

 

All that glitters is  gold - only shooting stars break the mould

You're a rock star - get the show on the road! Get your game on go play
Get your game on - so you can get paid

All that Glitters is gold - Only shooting stars break the mould! 

 

Let's Get Moving Into Action - Tim Armstrong

Let’s get moving into action
Let’s get moving into action
If you last too slow, no satisfaction
That’s something out there, there’s an attraction
If you hesitate now, that’s a subtraction
So let’s get moving, go into action”The lyrics say it all. Enough of discussion and speculation. Lets get INTO ACTION!

 

If you want to sing out sing out - Cat Stevens - awesome!!

 

If you want to sing out, sing out
If you want to be free, be free
If you want to live high, live high
If you want to live low, live low

Theres a million ways to go, you know that there are!

If you know what you want, you can find a way, you can do it today

If you want to be me, be me 
If you want to be you , be you
If you want to live high live high
If you want to live low, live low

If you know what you want, you can find a way, you can do it today - its easy!
