His thoughts and feelings are expressed in 50 vignettes that span 78 years from Birth, The Great Depression, and WWII to the assassination of J.F.K. and Reverend Martin Luther King’s speech, “I Have a Dream” to the Holocaust, the rescue of coal miners in Chile, Funerals, and the love of Italy, the home of his ancestors.
