|Old Geezer -
(slang for an old guy) - is easy to spot:
At sporting events, during the playing of the National Anthem, Old
Geezers hold their caps over their hearts and sing without embarrassment.
They know the words and believe in them.
Old Geezers remember World War II, the Depression, Pearl Harbor,
Guadalcanal, Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age,
the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing,
not to mention Vietnam.
If you bump into an Old Geezer on the sidewalk, he will apologize. If you
pass an Old Geezer on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady.
Old Geezers trust strangers and are courtly to women. Old Geezers hold the
door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on
the inside for protection.
Old Geezers get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and
children, and they don't like violence and filth on TV or in movies.
Old Geezers have moral courage. They seldom brag unless it's
about their grandchildren.
It's the Old Geezers who know our great country is protected, not by
politicians or police, but by the young men and women in the military
serving their country.
This country needs Old Geezers with their decent values. We need them now
more than ever. Thank God for Old Geezers!
