One thought on “101 Years Young”
I remember when I was in the 7th grade when I became interested in reading our daily news paper. I wasn’t interested in the sports pages like one would think. I liked Ann Landers, some of the cartoons, and most importantly the obituaries. I found that they told the stories of not just the person who had passed, but also history. I remember reading about veterans from the Spanish/American war, the local area pioneers, and the circumstances of their lives. I’m glad I learned so much from a $0.10 newspaper. Everyday I would come home from school and practice being a future man. I’d grab the newspaper and head to the throne room to read in peace and solitude. Stories like this dear woman’s was a true glimpse of what life was once like in her time. Thank you for sharing.
