The way to crush the middle class is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation. – Vladimir Lenin

A Memoir from Bo Lowman

Posted by iusbvision on April 18, 2006

As this will be the last article that I write for “The Vision”, Jarrod has given me permission to write whatever I want.  Since I have so many friends at IUSB and Notre Dame University, I wanted to say goodbye before leaving.  I did not want to forget anyone, so I decided to do it this way.  I would like to end with a poem, by Grace E. Easley

* A Place For Me *

“There is a special place in life,

That needs my humble skill,

A certain job I’m meant to do,

Nobody else can fill.

The hours are demanding,

And the pay is not too good,

And yet I wouldn’t change it

For a moment if I could.

There is a special place in life,

A goal I must attain,

A dream that I must follow,

For I won’t be back again.

There is a mark that I must leave,

However small it be,

A Legacy of love for those,

Who follow after me.

There is a special place in life,

That only I may share,

A little path that bears my name,

Awaiting me somewhere.

There is a hand that I must hold,

A word that I must say,

A smile that I must give, for there

Are tears to blot away.

There is a special place in life,

That I was meant to fill,

A sunny spot where flowers grow,

Upon a windy hill.

There’s always a tomorrow,

And the best is yet to be,

And somewhere in this world I know,

There is a place for me!”

~Grace E. Easley~

May God continue to bless you throughout your lives.
