Day 292: Angel of Music

In the musical “The Phantom of the Opera”, the main character, Christine Dae, is mourning the loss of her father. One of the most poignant moments in the show is when she goes to his grave and sings a song entitled "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again". She cannot seem to move on with her life, and desperately misses the companionship and tutelage her father always had for her.

It is this void in her life that allows the Phantom to causes so much trouble. The fact is that we really don’t know how long we will have our fathers, and may not realize just how much influence they had on us until they are gone.
