Anniversary Of Elvis

Recommended Posts


  I still remember where I was when I found out Elvis had died.  I was 6 years old and raced downstairs all ready to begin the day when I was quickly hushed by my mom who told me the funeral procession on the morning news,  I made the mistake of saying "who's Elvis?" and my Father exclaimed "The King of Rock N'Roll, now shhh"


I was a child, too, in elementary school. I don't remember the exact timing of his death in relation to this, but I was so happy that he was going to be coming to the city where I lived to do a concert & I was determined to get to that concert. The problem was this: it was well-known that you would have to sleep outdoors overnight in line - in order to be assured of getting a ticket. (No internet purchases back then because people didn't have internet at home - & if they had pay-by-phone, the concept was alien to me & was something my mom didn't do.)


Obviously my mom forbade me from going to sleep outdoors overnight downtown because I was just a little girl. That's it, I decided - my older brother had to do it for me. Certainly he would know how important this was & wouldn't deny me this favor! Lol. But he didn't see 'the importance' of it! Sleep outside overnight - on a sidewalk!? For what? Nope. Lol. And then, not long afterwards, Elvis passed away - into history. I was so sorry he passed away, but the indelible impression it made on me was that I knew I'd never get to see him in concert.


  This is why you should always "follow your heart" because you never know when God is going to call you home.
