"Geezers" are easy to spot; this is slang for an old man. 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
"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.
"Geezers" get embarrassed if someone curses in front of
women and children and they don't like violence and filth on
TV and in movies.
Geezers have moral courage.
Geezers seldom brag unless it's about the grandchildren
in Little League or music recitals.
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."
