> Never Say Die

Do you still remember the last line of the American Civil War novel “Gone With The Wind”? where Scarlett O’Hara said “Tara. Home. I’ll go home, and I’ll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day”?

This joins “Fiddle-dee-dee!” and “Great balls of fire!” as lines spoken by Scarlett O’Hara that have become commonplace in the language.

And Ted Kennedy’s “The hope still lives” — deep, inspired words — “And the dream shall never die.”

Have you watched the new Lucky Me commercial which features an adorable kid crying because he was not chosen for a basketball team?

Young boy:
12 lang ang napili sa tryout
Pang-13 ako
Praktis ako nang praktis
Huhuhuuuu… may uniform na ‘ko
‘Nay, bakit?

Voice over:
‘Pag Nanay ka alam mo’ng magpapasarap sa araw niyang masaklap.

Mother: Mag Lucky Me ka muna. Ano’ng sabi ng Nanay?

Young boy : Never say die
Mother: Ano pa?
Young boy: Tomorrow’s another day

Young man : Our dreams shall never die!

I remember my young nephew every time I watch this. I miss him so much but can’t do anything to be with him yet. He never failed to touch my heart.

I would usually call his Mom [my sister] everytime its flashed on the tube “Ang anak mo!”

Let us keep it alive in all that we do; because so much can be done, if we would just believe in that dream, and then act on it.
