Marshall High School
Links below are to Ron Munden's photos -
Class of '61s recent 55th Reunion activities.
As would be expected, they are professional quality, and for sale through his EastTexasTowns.com website. I expect to receive other photos from the Reunion in a few days, and will place them in a new special Class of '61 55th Reunion Photo album.
Michelson Museum Christmas Exhibit
The link above, is to Ron Munden's EastTexasTowns.com website where he has posted photos of exhibits from 50 years of ballet in Longview, including many Marshall dancers.
Dr. Harris recommends the museum as a place to visit when in Marshall, maybe with your grandkids.
Happiness starts with a smile...
…….we all need a good laugh to start our days!
The Contagious Power of Laughter...Too Much Fun
When you think of riding the subway, laughter and joy aren’t the first words that spring to mind. It’s a cramped place full of grumpy people either coming home from a bad day at work or are just generally upset. Yet if you’re lucky enough, sometimes you can find happiness in a subway train.
One such magical moment was captured when a Belgian advertising agency working for Coco-Cola hired an actor to randomly start laughing on the train.
With the tagline–“Happiness starts with a smile”– their new ad aims to bring a bit of joy to everyone’s day.
Just watch and we dare you not to let out a small giggle, too!

Just a Common Soldier
This is a great video. In spite of all the political
e-mail and videos we receive, this is a message
for all Americans concerning our GREATEST
generation and those who have served since.

A SALUTE TO
This page is dedicated to our classmates and all Americans who have served in the armed forces and to those who have lost their lives in the service of our country. They are the chosen;
we are the blessed.

The Tribute was on GoDaddy.com
Right where you're standing,
He fought for that ground.
A Vet is a person who answered the call,
Who went into war, and gave it his all.
but much preferred peace, like the way of a dove.
He asked not the reason, as he stood in the trench.
He faltered not once in the muck and the stench.
As soldiers in legions, they stood side by side.
They knew some would fall, as many more died.
They whispered their prayers in a helmet of sweat.
Shells bursting above wouldn't let them forget.
WHY "TAPS" IS PLAYED:
From the lakes ... From the hills ...
From the sky.
God is nigh.
And a star ... Gems the sky
Falls the night.
Neat the sun ... Neat the stars...
Neat the sky.
God is nigh.
Flame to burn in remembrance
Which must always come to pass
He hopes his shoes were shining
just as brightly as his brass
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my Church have you been true?"
"No Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint.
and at times my talk was tough,
and sometimes I've been violent
because the world is awfully rough.
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
when the bills just got too steep.
though at times I shook with fear,
and sometimes, God... forgive me,
I have wept unmanly tears.
among the people here;
They never wanted me around
except to calm their fears.
It needn't be so grand
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand.
Where the Saints quite often tread
As the Sailor waited quietly
For the judgment of his God.
You've borne your burdens well
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets;
You've done your time in Hell."
For many the battles never will end,
Now they are civilians, and find they can't blend.
Some are disabled, and some are disturbed.
After coming home from hell,
They find they've been curbed.
A veteran is special, to be not denied.
He put it up front, he need never hide.

Bill Peteet thought a little Patriotism was in order at a time when our
Country seems to be in such turmoil, and I agree.

This is the Marshall High School classes of 1960 and 1961 Website. What started out as a reunion website evolved into a "Stay In Touch" with classmates website. Each Classmate and our Guests have a personal page that is set up so they can share with us the things that have been going on with themselves and their families since High School. This is a great place to brag on your children and grandchildren, share your experiences and plans. Feel free to "link" your Facebook, My Space, You Tube, etc. to your personal page. Insert recent photos of you and your family, add your "since I left MHS" history, etc.
The site will be updated, active and useful for as long as class members want it to be. Update your personal information anytime you wish, and encourage other classmates to continue updating theirs. When you enter the Home Page, there is a box in the upper right hand corner that will indicate who else is using the site. To send an Instant Message to that person, simply click on the box and type in your message. When they get your message they can immediately respond. One can also go to the Message Center and contact anyone in the classes and/or our Guests, to begin a dialogue.
Addditionally, there are website Administrators available to assist with preparation of your personal page, as well as respond to questions you have about the site. They also, check new data entered by classmates to assure that it is admissable. Info60@marshallmavs.com for the class of 1960 and firstname.lastname@example.org for the class of 1961.
