#127 Since District 12 held so many memories for Gale, he eventually moved back with his family right before his young son began school. As he and his five year old son approached the school building, Gale pointed out a little girl with two long dark braids and a red plaid dress waiting to line up. He said, “See that little girl? I wanted to marry her mother, but she ran off with a baker. When she sings… even the birds stop to listen.” In music assembly that day when the teacher asked who knew the Valley Song, the little girl’s hand shot straight up in the air and she stood on a stool to sing in front of the class - as she sang, every bird outside the window stopped singing and listened. And as soon as the song ended, Gale’s son knew just like his father, he was a goner.
