    Vera Lynn RIP at a 103

    We'll Meet Again, Vera!

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    I've heard this song a few times recently and never knew who sang it.

    Just yesterday it started playing in my head again and I wondered why.

    It's crazy, I feel like lately my psychic awareness has been increasing.

    May she rest in peace.

    This woman alone inspired the soldiers of the WWII to win the war. Can you feel it? I can and I wasn't born then either. You are increasing in awareness, my friend!

    Vera Lynn The White cliffs of Dover

    Here's another song from the time:

    She was the very inspiration in the WWII with this song as well.

    I never knew that she sang this song first...this was in the 40s. How about that? Women didn't know if the boyfriends would return:
