I came across a news article about two elderly German men that escaped from a nursing home in order to attend a heavy metal concert.
When the nursing home realized the gentlemen were missing, they called the police. The police located both men at the concert at 3:00 in the morning and drove them back to the facility in a police car.
My first reaction – I want to be like those guys when I am old.
I want to still have the desire to escape in the night, to attend concerts, to feel wild, to bend rules, to express my individuality, to cause trouble, and to make people shake their heads in wonder.
When I was born, my mom was still in high school. I can’t even imagine how hard that must have been for her. I am sure she was scared and worried about the future. However, she was determined and always did the best she could.
When I hear this song, I think about my mother. I think about how hard those early years were for her. I admire her for all she did and for always being there for me.
