Don’t judge us because we are old!

Last night we were at the Lodi Talent show. A small framed older lady, badly crippled, sit at out right. I kept wondering what people would have seen, 30, 40, or 50 years ago if they would have looked at us then–certainly not three older crippled people! I remembered this older, crippled, gentle, Japanese bartender. I always wondered why he walked with such a limp. I later learned that he had fought bravely in Europe with the valiant Japanese-American unit. He had been severely wounded for we Americans. He never spoke about it but I will remember him for my life time. He was an American hero!—You can’t look at us older folks and know what we are really about—so many stories to be told!–olRoff
