What a life John Finn has led! He was 32 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. A lot of men his age joined the service that day, but John didn't need to, he was already there. His heroism was well documented, and he was the first recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor from WWII. John was given the medal from Admiral Nimitz, he never got to meet FDR. John was in Washington today to lay a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery, and then met with the President at the White House. Finn is currently the oldest living recipient of the CMH, he will be 100 in July. Mr Finn is living history, and a true American hero!
I am tired all the time anymore. I go to bed that way, and I wake up that way too. It's a miserable feeling for anyone who has never experience severe fatigue. I just can't seem to catch up, naps don't help, going to bed early and sleeping late don't either. My weight is killing me, it's not easy dragging 300 lbs around under the best conditions, but it's even harder with shaky legs, and no energy. I'm still doing my physical therapy exercises, and walking with the stimulator, but I'm having a pity party today. Today wouldn't be a good day to borrow money from me, I'm tired, I'm numb, I'm fat, and I'm bored, but at least I got to smile seeing Mr Finn finally have his day.
