Today family and family friend’s celebrate my father’s 75th birthday, the Platinum anniversary. It is amazing to think of all the things that he’s seen, experienced and done during that time.
He’s lived through World War II, served in Korea, was station and boxed in Japan. Saw Vietnam, 2 Gulf Wars. He saw the World Trade Center erected and saw the day that it fell.
Many things that we were taught through school he experienced, the Civil Rights movement and was around during the Black Panthers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. he saw the first man go to the moon, the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, and Robert Kennedy. Witnessed to U.S. Presidents go through impeachment processes. Saw Mandela jailed, and then freed and saw him speak in Atlanta at Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd stadium.
