Thank God For Old Geezers

"Geezers" are easy to spot; this is slang for old men.

But, at sporting events, during the playing of the National Anthem, they
hold their caps over their hearts and sing without embarrassment.
They know the words and believe in them. They remember World
War I, the Depression, World War II, 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 a "Geezer" on the sidewalk, he'll apologize,
pass a Geezer on the street, he'll nod, or tip his cap to a lady.
"Geezers" trust strangers and are courtly to women. They hold the door for
the next person and always when walking, make sure the lady is
on the inside for protection.

This country needs "Geezers" with their decent values and common
sense. We need them now more than ever. It's the "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
in foreign lands, just as they did, without a thought except to do a
good job, the best you can and to get home to loved ones.

Thank God for "OLD GEEZERS".
