Two battleships assigned to the training squadron had been at sea on maneuvers in heavy weather off the Oregon coast for  several days. As night fell, the captain noticed the patchy fog and decided to remain on the bridge.
    Shortly after dark, the lookout on the wing of the bridge reported, "Light. Bearing on the starboard bow".
    "Is it steady or moving astern?" the captain asked.
    The lookout replied, "Steady, captain," which meant the battleship was on a collision course with the other ship.
    The captain called to the signalman, "Signal that ship. You are on a collision course.   Advise you alter course
     20  degrees."
    Back came the answering signal, "Advisable that you change course 20 degrees."
    The captain said, "Send another message. I am a senior captain. Change course 20 degrees."
    "I am a seaman second class," came the reply, "Change your course at once."
    The officer was furious. He spat out, "We are a battleship squadron. Change your course 20 degrees."
    The flashing light replied, "I am a lighthouse."

"Like the North star, you're my guiding light as I sail into the night. Even though I'm alone I know everything will be all right.

Every person that is alive today or those have lived before us, have been lead by a guiding light. We today, need to use our guiding light to transfer our knowledge into the future to make it a better brighter world.
