I'm here in SA from northern Alabama. My dad, Rev. Dr. Paul Perry, who incidentally gave the invocation at MANY a Ram football and basketball game, passed away. I was given a box by my mom over the weekend. Besides the excitement of the 1976-77 band's panoramic photo and a montage of photos of me winning a Leon Valley pageant that ended up having me ride a float in Battle of Flowers, et. al., parades that year rather than marching with THE PRIDE, I had a gem put back in my hands: the December 1976 issue of the magazine put out by the CofC, "San Antonio Magazine." The cover article was written by Mary Fallon, and not only did she interview the directors and some of our fellow musicians, but also some non-band students, administrators, and faculty who bragged and bragged about us as PEOPLE and members of a cohesive organization.
I am going to get the entire article typed up. You guys are going to be very, very touched.
But one more thing: I have a particular "take" on the thrust of this article, and I would like to challenge you all to read the article, see my summation (which has to do with generational changes in discipline, respect, families, and parenting of adolescents). Then, let's get a roaring debate, ok? I'll find out exactly how best to set it up in the system so the article is easy to access and then comments can be created right away after reading the article.
