"While sitting and watching some of the festivities as well as MLK programs, my mind floated back many years to other Presidential Inaugurations. My mind took me back to the election of 1960 and the Legacy of John F. Kennedy. I can remember how excited this country was to see and witness how a man like JFK could be life-like! His dynamic personality as well as his empathy for ALL people was so evident.(A far cry from the president who will be leaving office tomorrow!)
As my mind wandered to days of the past, one person kept popping up in my mind......Yes..........OUR DAD!
I could envision him and witness his pride in our new President. I know he would have been glued to the T.V.(or even been standing in Washington D.C.).
Then, I realized .............today is January 19th..........HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He would have been 92 years old today. And I bet he would be just an avid reader as well as a caregiver to those who needed help. We should all be proud to come from that background. I wonder where we would be in our lives if not for our DAD!
I can still hear his loud laughter as well as his speaking style. When we were in church on Christmas Eve, I saw so many images of our dad......layreading and leading the prayers.
Please say a little prayer for our dad, as well as a prayer for our new President, Barack Obama.
I love you all,
