You may not have known this, but our aged population is stricken with fear. Many — if not all — of the elderly are too scared to even leave their homes.
“So we forget sometimes about our older generation,” City Councilwoman Jan Quillman pointed out at a meeting the other night.
“And that’s an important thing here because a lot of our neighborhoods have a lot of older folks in them that are scared to death in their homes,” Quillman said. “They’re afraid to even go out in their yards.”
Senior citizens, cowering in their homes, afraid to even venture outside to their yards. It sounds truly awful.
