My mother works as a donor rep for the American Red Cross here in Columbus Ohio. A few days ago I met up with her for lunch and she told me a woman who was 100 years old had donated blood at one of the drives she was sponsoring. I was blown away for two reasons. 1. This woman could still donate at 100 and 2. She is 100! Born in 1912 and still alive in 2012 that is incredible! I stopped as my mind was blown open thinking about all the history this woman has seen in her life!
She was born the year the Titantic sunk! Saw two world wars from 1914-1919 to 1939-1945. The Great Depression. Television. The Korean War. Creation of the space program. The computer. First man on the moon. Vietnam War. Color TV. VCRs. 8 tracks. creation of the Internet and the micro processor. Persian Gulf. 9-11. Ipods and Iphones. The list goes on but what is even more amazing is her parents were alive during the CIVIL WAR...Unreal! People like her should be declared national human landmarks or something because these are people who have seen almost everything in their life! The woman's name was Margret and I would love to meet this person face to face. People like her are history! Do anyone of you know someone that's 100 or past it still alive?
