Greek Orthodox Easter
by Maury Feren

It's not often that you can go back in time and see the world as it once was played out in modern times. It proves that it can be done. This is the family unity that we seek. This is what made America great.

I look forward to the day that we can all meet in the same way as a family who celebrates together.

The New Cleveland Ballet

Dr. Michael Krasnyansky, Chairman of The Board of the New Cleveland Ballet, spoke at the 99th birthday of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens on April 14, 2015. He told how the original Cleveland Ballet left Cleveland for California 15 years ago. The New Cleveland Ballet is now being formed.



Here are 3 young ladies from the Cleveland Ballet Youth Company who performed a dance from Masquerade at the 99th birthday of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.

Cleveland Ballet Youth Company is a classically trained youth ballet group made up of young dancers of exceptional potential. The mission of the Cleveland Ballet Youth Company is to train dancers (ages 14-19) in preparation of fulfilling Cleveland Ballet's core of professional dancers.




Where's My Mom? Where's My Dad?
by Joseph Patrick Meissner

I think back and regret that I did not spend more time with Mom and more time with Dad. There is no way to go back, and enjoy their company. There is no more opportunity for quiet walks in the Euclid Park or sitting on the wooden benches above the creek and enjoying the tumbling waters.

So I wind up this essay by giving you some expensive lawyer advice. If your Mom is still alive , call her right now. Make a simple call and listen to her gripes and complaints of pains.

Visit your Dad if he is still among the living. Give him a few minutes of your valuable listening time. But for me, it is too late.

Jacob: "How about medicine for circulation?"

Pharmacist: "All kinds."

Jacob: "Medicine for rheumatism?"

Pharmacist: "Definitely."

Jacob: "How about suppositories?"

Pharmacist: "You bet!"

Pain
by Maury Feren

Today I am going to spend a little time talking about pain. I'm not sure where this is going to take me since there are so many aspects to this subject. It is a fact of life but it encompasses everyone at some point but we all try to escape one way or another.

It has always bothered me why no one has been able to answer this question. Do you have to suffer in order to enjoy the benefits of feeling good? Then there is pain and suffering. That is another facet that I might get to discuss a little later. But here is the big one. How do you put all of this together when your doctor tells you that you only has 6 months to live?

Advice from Dear Webby - Different Political Views than Friends

Dear Webby,

It seems like I have very different political beliefs than most of my friends. Whenever they start talking politics I just back off, not wanting to make waves. But then I get home and feel like a wimp for not standing up for what I think is right.

And I don't want them to think I agree with them because I am not arguing. What can I do?

Not Politically Correct

Tin Roofs and Rock 'n Roll
by Amy Kenneley

How did The Nut Shop get to be our hangout? I don't know, but that was where we landed when we had outgrown the neighborhood playground. It was just a short walk up 101st street to Euclid Avenue--"Uptown"-- where there were five movie theaters competing for your popcorn and Goobers change. I can see their beckoning lights even now: University, Keith's RKO, Alhambra, Circle, and Loew's Park.

Was it "Rock Around the Clock" that blared from the loudspeaker outside the storefront that drew us in? If so, Then Bill Haley and the Comets must have been our Pied Piper.

Cleveland Seniors Special of the Week




ClevelandSeniors.Com Book of the Week



#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft.

Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption
