The real meaning of change
September 18, 2012 · Updated 3:07 PM
As an older person, I have seen many changes take place. Politically, economically, socially and in too many other ways to list.
Maybe it’s just senility setting in, but I can’t sit back and watch the country lose grasp of our founders’ efforts that made America the greatest nation in the world.
Maybe it’s normal for older people to resist change, but when I see younger folks with adornments on their face, I can’t help but wonder if they just want to be noticed, or feel they must accept the mentality of the herd in order to fit in.
Tattoos are the “in” thing now. Not just a simple “Mom” in a heart, but a whole tapestry covering a good portion of what’s visible.
Tattooed grandmothers were nonexistent when I was young. Hair styles have changed too. From shaved heads to multi-colored rooster combs, even twisted ropes and pigtails.
I recall a saying, “a woman’s hair is her flory and a man’s hair is his shame.” I think that’s true in many cases.
If what goes around comes around, maybe we’ll see judges wearing wigs again.
