Little Old Women - The heroes among us

Donna Sears

Did you know that today is Honor Your Elders Day? Neither did I. I just decided to call it that.

This column is not intended to lessen the gratitude and respect we all feel for the first responders who do the jobs that keep us going. I am just adding another category to the list.

This all came about because of a phone call I received last week. It was from a friend who lives downstate and has had a series of health issues this past year, including the amputation of her left leg above the knee. She is 90, and has continued to live alone, taking care of her home, and herself, from her wheelchair. She has no family living near enough to help her. 

I am filled with admiration and respect for her strength of character and positive outlook.
