AULD LANG SYNE: Robert Burns Reminds Us to Remember

Traditionally sung on New Year's Eve, Robert Burns' Auld Lang Syne reminds us to remember, and we remember by singing on New Year's Eve (if not every day of our lives) . . . we remember all the people who have been a part of our lives,  all the men and women, young and old, who have made us who we are, all the folks who have left us. And so, if we were asleep when the New Year rang in, let us sing this morning, and remember . . .

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne ?
For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,  we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne.
 Please feel free to memorialize in the comments below the folks you remember on this day.
N.B. Robert Burns was Peter Bilezikian's Favorite Poet.
