Today, I asked the 70 year old man enrolled in my piano class what inspired him to learn to play the piano at his age. He said, “For the last 52 years my wife would play me a few melodies every Sunday morning after breakfast. And now that she’s gone, I want to keep the tradition alive.” MMT

I know how he feels. My mother learned German at school and every Christmas, without fail, she used to sing "Silent Night" - in German! We used to tell her to stop but, now she has passed away, I would give anything to hear it again!

This made me cry my eyes out! I love this tho. Me nd my friends bawled so hard but its beautiful!

This made me worry about traditions. If we only take the time to preserve them when they've almost slipped away, what happens to the ones that slip through the cracks?
