I Am 90+ Years Old – back for one last round of questions. AMA!
I had a wonderful time answering over a thousand questions in my last AMA six months ago.
The events that transpired after my 15 minutes of Reddit fame helped make my 90th year to be one of the seven best of my life. I was profiled by the Washington Post; appeared on a German television station (as well as local American television); and in May penned a full-page piece in Oprah's O Magazine.
I was truly impressed at the breadth and depth of the questions I received in that AMA. I enjoyed sharing thoughts with so many (apparently) young people, and I wondered if there are any more questions out there that I might answer? I truly see the present days as some of the most critical ones I have seen in my lifetime, and I am convinced that inter-generational (as well as interracial/sexual/cultural/socio-economic et. al.) dialogue is extremely important. Perhaps there are some who have might yet have questions for me. I'm eager to share my perspective with you, and hear yours in return.
So if there are any more questions out there, let's have at them!
My bio in brief: Born in December 1925 in San Antonio, Texas – volunteered for the Marine V-12 program in 1943 – spent my working life as a teacher and principal in Michigan – four children and nine grandchildren – now retired in Washington, DC. More details in my previous AMA.
I won't be able to get to every question today, but I'll spend about an hour every day answering questions until everyone has a response.
