The popular song by Tony Orlando, “Tie A Yellow Ribbon,” tells the story about a young man who had totally messed up his life, dishonored his parents and wound up in prison. Upon his release from prison he sent his parents a letter indicating that he wanted to see them but understood if they did not want him as a part of their lives anymore. He simply asked them to tie a yellow ribbon on the oak tree if they wished to see him when he came to town. To his surprise the oak tree was covered with yellow ribbons and he renewed the relationship with his family.
