Take a stand

Wow…this is such an amazing Jim Morrison quote. He was an exceptionally deep man. I had the chance to visit the humble grave of this talented American rock legend about two decades ago. He was laid to rest amongst thousands of other musicians, artists and writers in a beautiful cemetery with stone pathways. The Pére-Lachaise cemetery in Paris was established by Napoléon Bonaparte in 1804. Ironically, this man with a deep heart died in Paris in 1971, due to the failure of his heart. Before he died, Morrison gifted humanity. He gifted us with enriched thoughts, as well as word laced lyrics and poems about fear, love, pain, strength and the destruction of reality. Souls which beam this type of bravery are few and far between.

    My girlfriends and I talked our French teacher into bringing us to pere Lachaise to see his grave when we went to Paris in high school. It was definitely a highlight of the trip! Although some of the parents thought it was weird that we had a cemetery on our itinerary.
