People can be so cruel to our senior population especially those with some form of physical limitation or a disability. I know this is one reason many seniors limit their contact with the public because the public can be cruel and intolerant or impatient with them. Not only the public but in some cases family members can demonstrate impatience as we learn from accounts of abuse of the elderly by family members.
However, back to BB King whom I heard during a concert held at Cal State San Bernardino a few years ago at the invitation of President Albert Karnig, I noticed that BB used a chair while performing but I did not expect to see him moving all over the stage or his voice to be strong. I used the performance to reminisce on back in the day when I was younger and I could dance to his music. Now all I can do is listen and move my shoulders as I sit in my power chair. When I want to hear his old performances, I put on a CD or dial him up on You Tube and watch his videos.
And as Elvis Presley sang in his song back in 1956: “Don’t Be Cruel”.
