A remarkable woman

Mira came to the United States to escape violence only to be shown utter disrespect from the aunt she was meant to stay with. With such human cruelty divvied out by relatives, sometimes the young believe that it would be easier to take their chances in their original situations and see what would become of them.
Mira was strong, as I stipulated earlier and with her strength, she was able to overcome so much more. She even decided to re-up her travel Visa and stay longer in the United States. This was made easier when consulate members noticed that she was able to type and gave her a job; which allowed her out of her current living situation.
From there she became (as many others did) persona-non-grata – without a country to call home – until which time she could get her green card and become a U.S. citizen. Even back in the late 1940s or early 50s, this took some time. Mira had to work to belong.
Besides that, she did not speak English. She had to learn the language from the bottom up; becoming the vast reader I met when she was 84. All of this cumulative data about one woman from Prague should prove to the vast majority just what a pleasure it is serving the elderly. They will have experienced everything that I never will because that opportunity is here and gone; just proves that everyone in this business needs to show that With Age Comes Respect.
