Heartwarming Email!

Fri Jul 19, 2002 3:26 am

Hi folks,

I just recieved this through my mailbox, I don't believe that it is real, but still, quite a nice read.

> Her hair was up in a ponytail Her favorite dress tied with a bow.
> Today was Daddy's Day at school, And she couldn't wait to go. But her
> mommy tried to tell her, That she probably should stay home. Why the
> kids might not understand, If she went to school alone. But she was not
> afraid; She knew just what to say. What to tell her classmates Of why he
> wasn't there today. But still her mother worried, For her to face this
> day alone. And that was why once again, She tried to keep her daughter
> home. But the little girl went to school, Eager to tell them all. About
> a dad she never see A dad who never calls. There were daddies along the
> wall in back, For everyone to meet. Children squirming impatiently,
> Anxious in their seats. One by one the teacher called, A student from
> the class. To introduce their daddy, As seconds slowly passed. At last
> the teacher called her name, Every child turned to stare. Each of them
> was searching, For a man who wasn't there. "Where's her daddy at?" She
> heard a boy call out. "She probably doesn't have one," Another student
> dared to shout. And from somewhere near the back, She heard a daddy say,
> "Looks like another deadbeat dad, Too busy to waste his day." The words
> did not offend her, As she smiled up at her Mom. And looked back at her
> teacher, Who told her to go on. And with hands behind her back, Slowly
> she began to speak. And out from the mouth of a child, Came words
> incredibly unique. "My Daddy couldn't be here, Because he lives so far
> away. But I know he wishes he could be, Since this is such a special
> day. And though you cannot meet him, I wanted you to know. All about my
> daddy, And how much he loves me so. He loved to tell me stories He
> taught me to ride my bike. He surprised me with pink roses, And taught
> me to fly a kite. We used to share fudge sundaes, And ice cream in a
> cone. And though you cannot see him, I'm not standing here alone. ”Cause
> my daddy's always with me, Even though we are apart I know because he
> told me, ”He'll forever be in my heart" With that, her little hand
> reached up, And lay across her chest. Feeling her own heartbeat, Beneath
> her favorite dress. And from somewhere in the crowd of dads, Her mother
> stood in tears. Proudly watching her daughter, Who was wise beyond her
> years. For she stood up for the love Of a man not in her life. Doing
> what was best for her, Doing what was right. And when she dropped her
> hand back down, Staring straight into the crowd. She finished with a
> voice so soft, But its message clear and loud. ”I love my daddy very
> much, He's my shining star. And if he could, he'd be here, But heaven's
> just too far. You see he was a fireman And died just this past year When
> airplanes hit the towers And taught Americans to fear. But sometimes
> when I close my eyes, It's like he never went away." And then she closed
> her eyes, And saw him there that day. And to her mother's amazement, She
> witnessed with surprise.
> A room full of daddies and children, All starting to close their eyes.
> Who knows what they saw before them, Who knows what they felt inside.
> Perhaps for merely a second, They saw him at her side. ”I know you're
> with me Daddy," To the silence she called out. And what happened next
> made believers, Of those once filled with doubt. Not one in that room
> could explain it, For each of their eyes had been closed. But there on
> the desk beside her, Was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose. And a child
> was blessed, if only for a moment, By the love of her shining bright
> star. And given the gift of believing, That heaven is never too far They
> say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate
> them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.

Just imagine how many kids have no father or mother or grandparents or brothers or sisters thanks to what happened.

Oh.

Beyond heartwarming. That is great. More could be said but is not needed.

That is a good letter... I didnt read it, just assumed it was one of those worthless chain letters...

This thread should have more than 1 star. I voted 5 and its still 1.

Oh geez...that the WORST piece of Hallmark sentiment I've read in years.

Sorry, it sounds and was written like a very bad ballad, by a very, very bad author. All that's missing is dead puppies.

It's so syrupy that it cheapens the memories of those that were lost---shame on whomever wrote it.

Seriously, I hate sh*t like this.

I'm not flaming any posters, just the e-mail.

Oh Greg, I'm so sorry that you have so much bitterness. The post was very touching.

Steve

PS : Susan was slightly less than truthful. I was out walking the beast, not lying on her and crying. Why I love her so much is beyond understanding. I think I'll quit letting her post with my user name. No, I guess not. She's only posted 3 or 4, that I know about, and I believe that she reflects my beliefs on those rare occasions. I hope it's not against any rules.

Don't worry Steve, as you and I both know, Greg is an miserable attorney. A tear came to my eye as well. I guess some people think about 9/11 in different ways.

Now that's true. Some of us are adults.
I didn't mean any disrespect.

(it's still the sappiest POS writing I've ever seen).

Best Regards.

P.S. Enjoying my life to the fullest!
