We can not forget for we are changed.
We have met the irreducible reality of death,
While yet young, impressionable and engaged.
We lost innocence, lost dreams, lost youth; forever
Friends now are dearer,
Family is dearer,
Life is dearer.
Time matters more,
For we are changed.
Why have I never written about this until now?
Now 41 years, three months and seven day’s after they died,
Twenty nine of them died; friends,family,lovers, gone.
We lived to remember;
They sang songs of praise and adoration, prayed and died before their time?
We remain to remember, to live a fuller and more aware life,
They left this husk of death for true life,
Leaving us behind with lessons.
They left us with a life forever,
In memorial of the Yuba City High School Concert Choir bus accident
