“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.”
“One-fifth of the people are against everything all the time.”
“This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the life of ease.”
“I thought they’d get one of us, but Jack, after all he’s been through, never worried about it I thought it would be me.”
“The challenge of politics and public service is to discover what is interfering with justice and dignity for the individual here and now, and then to decide swiftly upon the appropriate remedies.”
“Time and time again the American people, facing danger and seemingly insurmountable odds, have mobilized the ingenuity, resourcefulness, strength, and bravery to meet the situation and triumph. In this long and critical struggle, the American System of free enterprise must be our major weapon. We must continue to prove to the world that we can provide a rising standard of living for all men without the loss of civil rights or human dignity to any man.”
“Some men see things as they are and say, ‘Why’? I dream of things that never were and say, ‘Why not’?”

With the current statistic of one in two care workers will abuse the elderly, It is essential that citizens be able to recognize the warning signals-
The list below applies to hospitals hospices at home care workers and gov. agencies such as protective services.
If the worker does any of the below ask them to leave immed. (at home care) or request a different worker if at a business-
1 They yell at you or the elder person.
2. They refuse to talk directly to elder person about their care and treatments.
3. They force treatments on the elder person. Such as forcing them ot wear diapers when they do not need to.
4. Force medications against the direct verbal statement from elder that they do not choose to take that medication. ( Over medication can lead to medical conditions that did not exist before. Especially important in hospices)
5. Refusing to allow the elder person to exit the care situation if they are not satisfied with the service -(if protective service) refusing to leave the elder’s home after being requested to do so by the owner of the house. ( many complaints are malicious and fradulent)
Overall, if the elderley person paying for the care is upset and unhappy with the care listen to them -NOT the worker.
Peace and good luck you will need it.

They don’t make them like that anymore – he started out as a newspaper boy in Wilkesbarre PA. ending in the halls of congess, a lawyer like his role model Abraham Lincoln, working with Senator Byrd ” Get John Crawley,” he called out when they needed expert advice on negotationg contracts for the Army.. But he was a true everyday man – if you needed help he was there –
Once I had my car stolen while I was working in Philly. The police called that night round midnight and said we found it- here is the street where it is. We made it down there-found the car but the starter was burned out. John found a wire hanger in his old green van and fixed it up to jump start. He said to me pop the clutch as I roll the car – it was a one shot deal. I popped the clutch as the car picked up speed and it started!!!
I could hear him saying “Don’t let it stall! ” As he shook his head and smiled. I cruised down to 95 nouth and was on my way home.
No, they don’t make them like that anymore. I learned that night two things- what friendship was and that there was always a way – if… you had the will.
Peace and Merry X-mas Dad, or as you said as I drove into the driveway back home that night “Holy Christmas!”
