What will you do with your chance?

Growing up  in a family with four kids and two adults as a youth I found myself traveling in my dads station wagon many times. We went to school in the morning soccer, volleyball, baseball games and practices. We took many rides to grandma’s and aunts and uncles houses.  Thinking about the car rides now I am surprised at just how much time was spent in the car. The time wasn’t that bad either one of the highlights of our time spent riding and waiting in cars would be without a doubt my dad singing to us. Dads song of choice was of course “American Pie” by Don Mclean.   The song was written in 1971 it is a great song. This was one of the first downloads I made on i tunes. If you haven’t heard the song you should download it you will love it.

By the time I was 12 years old I could plow through the first verse of the song. The lyrics are great! The song starts with “A long long time ago I can still remember when that music used to make me smile And I knew if I had my chance I could make those people dance.” See how cool is that? I will answer very! I like this part of the song a lot, because the thing is we will all get our chance to “sing” or lead and when we do I wonder what we will do and what will we make those people do?
