Sandy Paton Fox Hollow Memories? (23) RE: Fox Hollow Memories? 30 Oct 02


I went to Bennington and bought a portable TV set at Grant's in order to watch Nixon resign, George. We plugged it in at Intertangle- folkenlochenwood. Caroline and I went on stage right after he quit and made the announcement to the crowd. Caroline sang "Only Remembered (for what we have done)" to celebrate. Lines like "only the truth that in life we have spoken..." seemed appropriate. Then the magic happened. Someone 'way back in the audience started singing "America the Beautiful" and it swept down through the audience until the hollow reverberated with the sound. "Bright Morning Stars" may have followed that one. I was so deeply moved, standing there on the stage with my dear wife, thinking that, after all was said and done, American democracy DOES work, and that man's forced resignation was proof, that I hardly remember more.
