AAF23Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone.

In the battle 20130710-224505.jpgto save sullivan north I’ve had thia poem from Mrs Mays English class pop in my head a lot. The reason??? The past two years the football team has had fantastic seasons. Even went undefeated and got a day named after the school. The whole area celebrated. Everyone was happy to be a part of north. They all were like yeah baby! But once that all calmed down, amd north was once again on the school boards chopping block, everyone forgot about that, they were like,we can’t fight the inevitable. I’ve been told more than once that I’m wasting my time. So to all those telling me that, if you aren’t a part of the fight, don’t expect to be part of the celebration when we win.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow it’s mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go.
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all.
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life’s gall.

Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a long and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox (950)
