Help me write an inspirational note to a kid from a poor family

This Christmas I'm taking part in an initiative to offer gifts to kids from poor families, that usually don't get any Christmas presents. I'm not sure who is receiving my gift, but I know it will be a boy between 12 and 17 years old. I'm going to offer a football, since it fits the age range, but I would like to include a written note to go with it, something inspirational and optimistic, relativizing the value of material stuff. Any suggestions?

Lyrics don't start when I expect them to in a song - is there a name?

In the song Dark Storm by The Jezabels (YouTube link), the first 25 seconds are a neat little bass (guitar?) riff. When I listen, it sounds like the very first note, the highest pitch note, is the first note of the measure, and that it should repeat like that throughout the song. But does it? [more inside]

Music for God to play before creating the universe

Everybody recognizes the THX deep note sound. Last night, at Nuit Blanche here in Montreal, and just before the fireworks, they were playing recorded instrumental music (with no percussion) featuring long drawn out notes that were as "rich" and exciting as the deep note sound. The music filled me with a thrilling anticipation of something powerful. What music could I have been hearing? What songs do I want to get?

In older techno tunes, it was common have a single high-pitched note held for a really long time in songs (sometimes through the entire song). Electronica has a ton of terms, from "amen breaks" to "acid", but is there a word (or are there multiple commonly used words) for that note?

Government bonds

I'm trying to find any example of what a U.S. Treasury security might look like (T-bill, T-note, or T-bond, but not a savings bond). I understand most treasury bonds are electronic now, but it wasn't always that way. The Treasury FAQ says that paper versions still exist. Google Image turns up nothing but oodles of financial graphs no matter what I do. Nothing over 100 years old, please! Versions of this from other countries are fine as long as I can read them in English and they're recent.
