The Castle on the Hill Not the

What did I miss? When did it become the HIGH and why..My children were mad because I moved and they never got the chance to go to the Castle. Uncles graduated 1963, 1964 Aunt graduated 1963, Mom 1969.

Now 40 and 30 plus. And it is the High. OK it can be the High if the same numbers of graduates go on to finish college(?) If current students make the same rights of passage. I guess I am being sentimental cause I am surrounded by Otis Redding, Pharoah Sanders photos...remembering when the Panthers surrounded the Castle, Jazz Concerts in the Auditorium etc etc etc yeah the King and I, Westside Story were also played in the Auditorium. Sun Ra. He may have been looked high but he was true. Did someone tell you about the Supremes in the auditorium? The singers who did background for all those famous people who were in town on a regular basis. Just like when the army was in Philadelphia - Camden was happening. Did you ever visit the Whitman anything? Do you know the history of the Third Ward or any Ward. Who in your family worked at Campbell Soup?

I keep waiting for this spot to say- YOU ARE NOW AT YOUR END...The Castle on the Hill
