Allied Museum in Berlin, May 13 2009 Ready to enliven the Wee CARE Choir Quentin Blake Europe School German-English Bilingual Elementary School Performing for Airlift Veterans Hope of a life free of hunger and fear This can only be Gail S. Halvorsen. The Chocolate Pilot … the kids’ favorite during the Airlift and now. When you see me wave my wings, as I circle way up high That’s the signal that sweet things will come floating down from the sky. He gave his wings a wiggle, and the tiny parachutes Like flocks of white doves filled the air. I see in all directions many children waiting They’re hoping for a sign we care. I’ll be a Chocolate Pilot, even if I never fly All I have to do is learn to share. That choreography isn’t bad, kids … … but try this! Now that’s style! Airlift veterans and their families applaud I never got a principal’s award as a kid! Supporting CARE/Germany’s Airlift Memorial Project. Original songs sung by the kids … and inspirational stories told by the Chocolate Pilot Berliner children of today say THANK YOU by helping others.
