2. There's one by Kenny Rogers
about a kid learning to play ball - and he throws up the ball to hit it three times, and misses all three...

instead of getting frustrated, and down on himself, he says "Even I didn't know I could pitch that good"

9. Garth Brooks - "The Change" A perfect song for liberals like us.
Edited on Sat Apr-09-11 06:57 AM by Lyric
http://vimeo.com/8716214

The Change

One hand, reaches out
And pulls a lost soul from harm
While a thousand more go unspoken for
And they say what good have you done
By saving just this one?
It's like whispering a prayer
In the fury of a storm

And I hear them saying, you'll never change things
And no matter what you do, it's still the same thing
But it's not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

This heart still believes
The love and mercy still exist
While all the hatreds rage and so many say
That love is all but pointless, in madness such as this
It's like trying to stop a fire
With the moisture from a kiss

And I hear them saying, you'll never change things
And no matter what you do, it's still the same thing
But it's not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

As long as one heart still holds on
Then hope is never really gone

I hear them saying, you'll never change things
And no matter what you do, it's still the same thing
But it's not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world we know
Never changes me

What I do is so
This world will know
That it will not change me

------------------------------------------------------------

Whenever I feel like giving up, I listen to this and remember why I started trying to make a difference in the first place.
