Vote for Skylar!

Remember the courageous and passionate young lady in my past entry who entered a local fashion designer contest ala Project Runway?  Below is her prom gown entry. I think it is fresh and funky! Please vote for her if you could at:  Life | The Pensacola News Journal

 

                                              

The Impossible Dream

(Man of La Mancha Soundtrack) 

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 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, will lie peaceful and calm,
when I'm laid to my rest ...
And the world will be better for this:
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach ... the unreachable star ...

Love the prom dress.  She really looks sharp.  Will vote--hope she wins!..........So good to read the words to The Impossible Dream once again.  It was my husband's favorite song, and I had the singer sing it at his grave site......LaVern
