I’ve watched every single closing of this Telethon over the years. Mostly Live, but because of Detroit’s Jazz Fest. This one on Tape. And I can remember 30 years ago when Jerry Lewis was younger breaking down during this last number ” You’ll Never Walk alone “. But this year 2010, I never saw such emotion that poured from this Beautiful Human Being. Maybe because he’s now 84 or that he just so wants a cure to be found so bad in his lifetime for these victims of this dreadful disease. But never have I ever seen him to the point where the emotion of that moment became so overwhelming that he literally broke completely down and could not sing that entire song. Personally I never knew how he could do it when younger.
And anyone else who has a heart beating within them cries while watching him sing that final number. But this year he had me crying as hard as him throughout. If people don’t think all this comes from this man’s Heart and Soul, your just not human.
God Bless you sir, God Bless your cause and may we find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy and diseases associated with MD, MS. May we have Jerry around for many more years. But with him a Cure for this disease.

When you walk through a storm
Keep your chin up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark.
At he end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho’ your dreams be tossed and blown.Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone,
You’ll never walk alone.
GOD BLESS HIS HEART.
