    One Mans Opinion

    Part I

    As youve probably heard by now. Tragedy has again struck myfamily this year with passing of my Father, Mr. Omega Louis Gilliardlast week. He was 92 years old. Before I move on, I want to thankall of you for your expressions of sympathy, comfort and condo-lences. It is greatly appreciated. You can read his obituary on page13 if youre interested, but I thought Id share with you a different perspective about him and some ofthe things he taught me.

    He taught me how to work hard and be responsible. I admit there were many days when I wasyounger that I didnt go to work because I was out too late the night before or I just didnt feel like it.I knew better. My Father never missed a day at work and when I say NEVER I mean NEVER.Through head colds or the flu or late nights or whatever he Always got up and went to work, nomatter what. He had about a year and a half sick leave saved up, so he was off work about that longbefore retiring. I had jobs growing up as a teenager and I didnt miss work, he wouldnt let me. Eventhough, later on my own, I wasnt as conscientious, but I was Always a Hard worker. I would neverlet Anyone outwork me.

    My Father taught me about women. When he and my Mother were leaving me at Howard University,he pulled my aside and whispered. Theres a lot of pretty little girls around here, but I want you toknow, you cant have them all. I thought to myself yea, right, what does he know I tried, he wasright and I was so, so wrong. I was even shocked when some of them didnt want me.

    He taught me how to argue and stand up for myself. Through my 20s and 30s we had a standingargument about the Irresistible Force vs The Immovable Object. Wed go on and on as to who wasright. It went on for so many years that Im pretty sure we switched sides and neither of us realized it.

    He taught me responsibility. Again this was a lesson best learned with age. But he and Mom madesure we had everything we needed and some of what we wanted. We were clean, went to schooleveryday, well fed, with a nice home, I thought we were rich. Especially, now, taking care of family isTHE priority in my life and Ive learned from a great mentor.

    He taught me compassion. We always Indian Wrestled. When I was small, hed let me win and I feltgreat, as we got older, Id let him win. I could see the happiness in his eyes as he said, I still got it.

    I could go on and on, but Ill close now, because Ive realized that Im writing this article more formyself than for you and my face is starting to leak. Im sure Ill run across it again in a few years andread it and smile. I hope youll forgive me this selfish indulgence as I honor my Father.

    Just, One Mans Opinion.Live Long and Prosper

    Ronald A. Gilliard, Publisher

    I always told my Daddy, You know, the older you get,the more you look like me.
