I Believe

... I do not believe anyone in politics...

… I do not believe anyone in politics…

I woke up this morning feeling that in my sleep I had discovered a great truth. American’s no longer believe one another.

  • Democrats do not believe anything that Republicans say and visa versa.
  • The Tea Party Members do not believe anything either party says.
  • The American Public does not believe anything that is said in Washington.
  • TV Viewers do not believe anything they see or hear today on TV.
  • I find myself listening to President Obama when he gives a speech or makes an announcement and I listen and then I holler out “Bull Sh-t!” That is all, just “Bull Sh-t!”
  • I holler out the same thing when I listen to the Republicans and I did he same with President Bush.
  • In other words I do not believe anyone in politics nor do I believe much of anything I hear today.

So what do I believe? Well, in 1953 Ervin Drake, Irvin Graham, Jimmy Shirl and Al Stillman wrote a song and it was made introduced by Jane Froman. Frankie Laine also made it a hit song. I believe in those lyrics http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rf0l9YnQN4I

Here they are..

I Believe

I believe for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows
And I believe that somewhere in the darkest night a candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray
Someone will come to show the way
Yes I believe, oh I believe
I believe above the storm the smallest prayer will still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere hears every word
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why I believe
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why I believe
I believe
Oh I believe

  1. I have to tell you I read every single one of your blog entries and enjoy them immensely.
    This is one of my favorite songs as well. I remember listening to Elvis Presley & Tom Jones versions. Just beautiful.

    Keep writing, keep believing!

    Sincerely, Jan

  2. Finally, I am getting your articles again. Love this one – this is one of my favorite songs. The lyrics are so true!

    Glad you and Jean had a wonderful trip. Will “talk” to her soon.
