"In the spring of 1878, General William T. Sherman opened a letter from his oldest son Thomas, a young man for whom he held great hopes. At 22, Tom had studied at Georgetown and Yale, and had graduated from law school. Sherman envisioned a bright future for Tom, one which would ensure the family's security. The letter, however, left him shocked, distressed, even furious.
 
Tom wrote that he wasn't going to continue as a lawyer, but was joining the Jesuits that summer. The General told Tom in no uncertain terms that he had betrayed him, his sisters and mother, who looked to him for support in their old age. (He always felt his army salary didn't go far enough.) It's not clear that Sherman ever fully forgave his son...."

Ebony and Ivory live together in perfect harmony,
Side by side on my piano keyboard -- Oh Lord, why don't we?

We all know that people are the same where ever you go;
There is good and bad in everyone.
We learn to live, we learn to give each other what we need to survive together alive.
