Where Eagles Dare

Today I saw the film ‘Eddie The Eagle’ a wonderful sort of the triumph of the human spirit over any circumstances. I thoroughly recommend it.

People cannot see the damage they do
When they dismiss everything you try.
With tearful eyes they watch your spirit die.
They don’t understand what they’ve done to you
By telling you your dreams cannot come true,
But you did not believe the well meant lie,
You believed you were going to fly.
None can deny Eddie the Eagle flew.

The spirit soars up in triumphant dreams,
With determination conquering pain.
You earned the respect of the other teams,
There was nothing more you had to explain
As you acknowledged the spectators’ screams.
When we dare to try, the Eagle flies again.
