    Everyone has a song that reminds them of a particular moment in their lives, happy or sad or sometimes indifferent. Its only that when you hear that song it takes you back even catching you off guard and suddenly your back in high school or remembering someone you loved and lost.

    How many of you have a song that reminds you of leaving the ORG. for me it’s The Beatles- The Long and Winding Road and most songs from the Let it be Album, for one thing my dad forbid me from listening to the Beatles, said they were hippies, well hearing that song now takes me back to 15 years old, standing up to my parents telling them I do not want anything to do with Witnesses and the many beatings and tactics that followed

    Imagine, by John Lennon

    Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today...

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    "For Those About to Rock" AC/DC

    I lost and gained a lot the day that I first heard that song/album. Anyone remember Malt Duck Liquor? Little bottles of Red, Yummy, Malt Liquor. When you're 13 it don't take many of 'em to make you do not-right things. Ever heard of a full-face hitter made from a gas mask? Yeah, did I mention I was 13.

    I think that's the day that Jehobee scratched me from the "Nice Kids" list.

    Herb Alpert - This Guys in Love With You...

    I remember it from my childhood, my Dad would play it all the time, along with Herb Alpert's other albums. The song itself doesn't have any relation to any one of us leaving the truth, and doesn't have any real meaning other than when I think of my Dad, I think of this song, his love for my mom... now he as well as just about the rest of my family have left.

    Guess i'm next. We'll see what song fits that occasion.

    Feelin So Good by Jennifer Lopez - It's exactly how I feel about leaving the borg and living my life and I play it every moring to remind to be grateful that I'm free

    When I opened up my eyes today
    Felt the sun shining on my face
    It became so clear to me that everything is going my way
    I feel like theres no limit to what I can seeGot rid of fears that were holding me
    My endless possibilities
    Has the whole world opened for meThats why Im feeling...
    Chorus: Im feeling so good
    I knew I would
    Been taking care of myself
    Like I should
    cause not one thing
    Can bring me down
    Nothing in this world gonna turn me round...
    Now the day is turning into night
    And everything is still going right
    Theres no way you can stop me this time
    Or break this spirit of mine
    Like the stars above Im gonna shine
    Anything I want will be mineTonight Im gonna have a good time
    Call a few friends of mine
    cause Im loving lifeAnd tonights for feeling...
