the crackle of the overhead speaker,
usually mute after morning announcements,
interrupted our lesson.
someone must have thought
we should know what had happened in dallas.

what happened in dallas
that sent us streaming into the halls,
sobbing and confused,
leaning against the shoulders
of teachers and friends,
pained and numb all at once.

pained and numb all at once
that he was gone, not yet
knowing it would all change now,
the bright future diminished, and our eyes
fixed on tv screens for days after,

tv screens during the day,
usually verboten until after dinner,
while history played out in front of us
inside the little black and white box:
the bloody pink suit, the riderless horse, the casket
lying in state

Forest Lawn's popular holiday event returns!

Forest Lawn’s popular holiday event, It WAS A Wonderful Life (IWAWL), is back this year, written and directed by Joseph Demerly. IWAWL is narrated by John Lay, the first person to be interred in Forest Lawn (in 1850). Mr. Lay will introduce the audience to several of the friends he’s made over the last 163 years at Forest Lawn – all portrayed by local actors – who will give the audience poignant and musical glimpses into Christmases past, when they enjoyed life on this side of the Lawn.

Forest Lawn’s historic chapel will be festively decorated for this holiday event, which begins on November 30 and runs every Saturday and Sunday through December 29. All performances begin at 2:00 p.m. Cost is $25 per person. Seating is limited; reservations are required and can be booked by visiting www.forest-lawn.com or by calling 716.885.1600 for more information.
