The Dash between a birth-date and a death-date

The Dash between a birth-date and a death-date

 The Dash

 “The Dash” originally was an essay written by Alton Maiden, a former Notre Dame student and football player under famed coach Lou Holtz. Coach Holtz first read the composition to his players in 1996 at a team meeting.
From A Teen’s Game Plan for Life by Lou Holtz:

 A few years ago Notre Dame went over to Dublin, Ireland to play the Naval Academy in football.

When we were over there, we went to a twelfth-century cemetery. All we saw was a group of dilapidated walls and huge tombstones.

One of our players, Alton Maiden, sat down at this cemetery and wrote a poem.

The Dash 

I’ve seen death staring at me with my own eyes in a way many cannot know.

I’ve seen death take a lot of other people and leave me here below.

I’ve heard many mothers’ cries but death refused to hear.

And in my life I’ve seen a lot of faces filled with many, many tears.

After death has come and gone a tombstone sits for many to see.

It’s not more than a symbol of a person’s memory.

I know the person’s name.

I read the date of birth. Dash. And the date the person passed.

But the more I think about the tombstone, the only important thing is the dash.

Yes, I see the name of the person but that I might forget.

I also read the date of birth and death but even that might not stick.

But thinking about the person I can’t help but think about the dash.

Because that represents a person’s life and that will always last.

So when you begin to charter your life make sure you’re on a positive path.

People may forget your birth and death but always remember:

They’ll never forget your dash.

Learning history to honor our fallen heroes of D-Day

Learning history to honor our fallen heroes of D-Day

It is an honor to…  honor our fallen heroes.

To make the history of World War II more vivid and meaningful, teams of students and teachers are tracing the footsteps of those who served and died during the invasion of Normandy.

We should always remember and to honor our fallen heroes of all acts.

 

Participants in National History Day’s Normandy: Sacrifice for Freedom Albert H. Small Student & Teacher Institute spend months doing intensive research on a single “silent hero,” before offering a personalized graveside eulogy. The NewsHour’s April Brown reports.
