An Old Man Looks Back On His Life
Mr. Jackson’s father had just
passed away.
He had died of cancer. George had
sat up

with
him during the last night at the hospital. Both men knew that end was
drawing near
, but the older man
kept on
talking cheerfully.
“I am not unhappy, “he told his son. “Sometimes life has been difficult, but I usually
faced up

to
its problems. When I was a student, I
tried out for
the football team and didn’t meet with success. I
dropped out
of high school for a year after that. I
fell in with
some young men who were rubbing people on the streets. We didn’t use real guns. We
held
people
up
with wooden guns that looked real. “The police arrested five of us and made us
line up
at the station. They
called in
people who had been robbed and asked them to
pick out
the robber. The boy who had done most of the robbing was not there. He had
gotten away
. “one of the people picked out another boy and me, but of course we didn’t
let on
that we were guilty. I promised myself that I
got out of
trouble, I’d
go back
to school and never steal again. I’ve never
gone back
on that promise. “I
met with
a lawyer several times, and at the trial the judge
let me off
with a warning. Back in school I worked hard and graduated, and then I
looked for
a job. A couple of years later I met your mother and we really
fell for
each other. I was ready to
settle down
and we got married. “Your mother always
stood by
me, even when times were hard and food was scarce. When I needed help, she always gave it to me. She never
hung back
. She was a wonderful woman, George. I
look back on
our years of marriage with no regrets. Sara and I always
pulled together
like a team of good horses”. He was getting tired and was beginning to
drift off
, but he tried to keep talking. His son could hardly
hold back
the tears. “She was a wonderful, wonderful…” The old man’s voice faded, and his breathing suddenly stopped. George
rang for
the nurse.
