To remember...A million stars...

Tom Farkash, helicopter pilot killed in summer 2006 war with Hezbollah. His sister Amit wrote this song to for him On July 24, 2006 Lt. Tom Farkash, 23, was killed along with another soldier when their Apache helicopter crashed en route to a mission across the Lebanese border during clashes with Hezbollah terrorists. Tom was a second generation pilot. Ever since he was a child he'd looked forward to the day when he could join the Israeli Air Force like his father. The same evening Tom's family recieved word of his death, his sister Amit, along with a friend, composed a song entitled "A Million Stars" in his honor. It is her farewell song to him. Both the melody and the words are quite moving, particularly as it is sung by Amit herself.************************* "A Million Stars************* You wanted to fly, You wanted to move forward With half a smile you went up A million stars in the sky Catch the color of your eyes Give me just one second to tell you goodbye You wanted to fly, you went too far In the midst of all this chaos, there is no one left to protect me A million stars in the sky Catch the color of your eyes I wanted just a second to tell you goodbye I wanted to sing You took up your guitar An angel playing for me Now with you I am singing A million stars in the sky Catch the color of your eyes I wanted to sing to you, to tell you goodbye I wanted just one second to tell you goodbye Give me just one second to tell you goodybe" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ link to hear this beautiful song :http://www.onefamilyfund.org/Portals/0/MediaGallery/millionstars.mp3
