    Hi, I a 72! I still feel 18, there isn’t anything I can’t do (that I have always done). I am a veteran and march in parades in my uniform and 3 inch high heels……I have written two books,and my life story of overcoming(and thriving) won a scholarship and I started school at 60! Sophomore at 72! I walk every day and take ballet (my first love in life)…. was born with a sunny disposition and love to laugh (good thing, or I might be drooling in a corner…..

    Overcame a childhood of fatherlessness, abusive mentally ill mother, molested…poverty…no phone car, refrigerator tub or shower; snow came in thru a crack in the 120-year old tenement house…born standin’ up and talkin back; been writing to the media for 20 years to be able to speak on National Television regarding verbal abuse…I speak to groups and presented my paper: Society’sHidden Pandemic, Verbal Abuse, Precursor to Physical Violence and a Form of Biochemical Assault at my State’s Counseling Association.

    Some of the 14 endorsements for mylife story are so humbling: Elie Wiesel, Wayne Dyer, Nikki Giovanni, Drs.AliceMiller, Larry Dossey…etc….okay, done bragging! Keep on being young!
