FOR SENIORS: THE DIFFERENCE IN GOOD AND BAD DAYS

Jul 13th, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

When living in Omaha and working there back in the 70′s, each day brought an encounter with a dear, aging friend. My question of him each morning would be: “What’s it like, Emmitt?” His reply: “Moving slow, Jerry, moving slow.” He experienced some health issues brought about from a long life of caring for others, working hard at his profession (a minister), and taking seriously the issues of the time. I remind you that it was the 70′s and he was African American.

Every issue, every cause, every ripple affecting the black community landed on his door step. He had served in that part of Omaha for a number of years. He was well known, well respected and liked, and articulate. The result was that he was drawn into every pulse beat involving the African American community.
