Thought on the Wednesday…
By Rex Taylor
Someone said “success comes with experience and belief, not age”
Last month, few college graduates have seen what Doreetha Daniels has seen.
At 99 years old, Doreetha Daniels has lived through a number of watershed moments in American history, including the Great Depression, World War II, the Civil Rights movement, the moon landing and the rise of the Digital Age….and also just graduated from College of the Canyons (COC) in Santa Clarita, Calif., with an associate degree in social sciences (News an hour ago). Daniels said she wanted to finish her education to better herself. But her journey, which started in spring 2009, has been wrought with personal difficulties — from multiple strokes to sight and hearing issues to the revocation of her driver’s license.
What a woman!!!!
I googled for more answer…
So then I googled ‘aged graduate’ to learn more and found many more inspiring stories….
And the thought struck home despite the ups & downs of our world, despite the doom and gloom of politics etc., there is much in our world to be inspired about…or if you like…there is much in our world about which to be inspired.
We’ve just got to know a neighbor from the other end of our street, (100 meters away – it’s a short street) she’s possibly late 70’s, lives alone in a small terrace and we called upon her (by invitation) as she had an issue with her Mac laptop. Henry being the ace IT man that he is, resolved the issue to her delight. But back to L as she will be named. Lives in a small 2 up 2 down terrace, jammed pack full of her life’s collection, and I mean jammed full. It’s in a state of total chaos (to the observer) because L is building her own bookshelves….she’s building her own book shelves (& they’re looking great)….Inspirational. As well as that, compiling her life’s work in Typography into a publication…some 1,000+ page designs, motifs, trade marks, corporate logos etc. also Inspirational.
