I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, [which] shall never hold their peace day or night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 KJV
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

As I was sound asleep on the morning of 8/11/22, 5 "deep,
muffled" sounding knocks woke me up at 1:39. Just laying in
bed, thinking, the song, TO SIR, WITH LOVE, came to me.
It is from the movie by the same name and is about a teacher
who has decided to leave his teaching profession after a very
difficult year but changes his mind at the end.

Thackeray is angry with himself for allowing his pupils to incense him. Changing his approach, he informs the class that they will no longer study from textbooks. Until the end of term, when they are due to leave school, he will treat them as adults and expects them to behave as such. He declares that they will address him as 'Sir' or 'Mr. Thackeray'; the girls will be addressed as 'Miss' and boys by their surnames. They are also allowed to discuss any issue they wish. He gradually wins over the class, except for Denham who continually baits him.
At the dance, Pamela persuades Thackeray to be her partner for the "Ladies Choice" dance. Afterward, the class presents to Thackeray "a little present to remember us by". Thackeray is moved and retires to his classroom.
A younger couple of rowdy pupils rush into the classroom hand in hand. Surprised by Thackeray's presence, they chide him and laugh at Thackeray's gift, a silver tankard and card inscribed "To Sir, with love" signed by the entire departing class. They threaten that they will be in his class next year. After they leave Thackeray stands up and tears up the engineering job offer, reconciled to the work he has ahead of him. He then takes a flower from the vase on his desk, places it in his lapel, and leaves.
