Look at the way things were and where they are going. Birth, Life and decline to death cycles in the early 1900's are coming back as they should. The Family home is also the perfect Nursing Home if you prepare and care. Our Grandparents didnt leave the responsibility for raising their kid in the hands of others yet we will pay them back by giving them 24 hour sitters in an institution that doesnt resemble anything to do with home.
Im taking this afternoon off to retrofit an 89 year old friend of mines house with pull bars and shower seats. He had a stroke a month ago (his second one) and he can come home to his 84 year old wife (whos dying of cancer) if we we just do a few things to make his home safer for him. I cant say if he will be there a week, a month or a year but he was smiling from ear to ear yesterday as we walked around with the Therapist in his home instead of the Nursing Facility! They will be bringing him back about 6pm tonight so Ive got my work cut out for me but its worth it to see them together in there home if not just for that moment!
This makes me proud to count you as an acquaintance,
even if only in the most casual degree.
You're making a world of difference in two people's lives,
when they need it the most. You sir, are a true, red-blooded
American, in the America I know and love.
You'll find, as time passes, when you selflessly help others,
you become stronger, and the person you help most, surprisingly,
