I wish to express my sympathy to all of the American people on this day of sadness!
I was going to post the words to "High Flight" but I am so pleased to see that Blues=life has already done so. John Magee's words seem to say it all. It is eerie to think that they were written over 60 years ago.
John Magee ,an American, was a wartime pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force and gave his life at the tender age of 19 in defence of freedom.
As a Canadian I share your sense of loss today and I admire your ability to overcome tragedy and forge onward.
