Sad Schoolchildren

Jim's sister Mary (I believe that was her real name) was my 2nd grade teacher at Blessed Sacrament Grade School in Sioux City, Iowa in 1968. I remember the day in morning prayers when she asked us all to pray for her brother who was being sent to Vietnam. We wrote him letters and she would read some of his letters to the class. I remember the day we found out. We'd left for lunch and when we came back, we were greeted in class by a substitute teacher who broke the news to us. We were so crushed by her loss and never got to see her again. We loved her spirit. She taught me to love singing. I hope that she was eventually able to find peace within herself over Jim's death. It still brings tears to my eyes. Sr. Stephanos - we never forgot you or your brother Jim.

A Hero of Freedom

The South Side of Chicago holds its head a little higher today because Jim Beck gave his life that we may have freedom for all people on earth. His life connected us to a worldwide network of creation. We will not forget your laughter and your love of family. We know you will always be there for us.
