Song Choice

10 Why Do Kamikaze Pilots Wear Helmets_.m4a

The song that I chose is titled, "Why Do Kamikaze Pilots Wear Helmets", by The Red Light Sting.

Lyrics:
Hiding our heads in the sand won't help us with these problems we have.
Time is running out, my dear.
One minute to go! Sound the alarm.
I can't hear anything but the sound of my heart racing, and then comes the impact.

Promotional Piece Titled "Class NY"

Uppercase Letters

The characters in The Great Gatsby tried to be perfect in every way, but every human is going to fail at absolute perfection.
