Fifty Years Ago...

...I was thirteen and home from school because I was sick.
Fifty years ago there were no one-hundred cable channels...only a few to watch while I was home sick.
Fifty years ago I sat bundled up in the chair and watched the only thing on television, the new President giving an inaugural address.
Fifty years ago I discovered a new hero.
Fifty years ago I began to think about what I wanted to be when I grew up.
Fifty years ago I began to dream.

I never got a chance to fulfill that dream.
But in those fifty years I became the person I am today, with a little help from the words of that new President.
