My Dad's Warm and Calloused Hands By Laurie Ann Moore Dillenbeck (daughter)

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

My Dads Warm and Calloused Hands By Laurie Ann Moore Dillenbeck Time cannot hinder the reverent recollections I have of my dad and the way his touch radiated the love that he had for me. Dad and I walked, leading my horse Molly, down the narrow road from our 1814 rock farm house to the barn, while he carefully guided us, the sun shined brightly on the old rusty barbed wire, that was divided by glistening aged fence posts, which seemed to unknowingly balance several inches of fluffy white flakes. The smell of crisp clean air gave a sense of cleansing, as did the conversations I had with Dad. He always had the answers to my many questions. The flying crystals brilliantly produced a snow-globe effect, which seemed protected, as I was protected by my father. Pine boughs loaded with snow seemed to create a sound proof barrier. All you could hear were the crunching sounds of the snow compacting beneath each step we took, and the perfect rhythm of Molly’s hooves penetrating the fresh, untouched drifts. My dad held my seemingly tiny hand, tight in his calloused, strong and yet gentle hand, to keep it warm and safe from the bite of cold. His hands were always warm, as if he had just pulled them away from a roaring fire, or even a hot steaming water bottle. They were brown from the long summer days that he worked so diligently to provide for his family, although this was extraneous, as we were all satisfied with his love, which seemed to fill us. The deep scars on his hands leading from knuckle to knuckle seemed to spell, “HARD WORK.” I can imagine feeling the comfort and acceptance in my dad’s warm hands as he held me, his new Christmas baby, so many years ago. Many other times I have felt unconditional love and security in my father’s grasp, much like the walk from the 1814 rock farm house to the barn. Now that I am grown and my dad has passed on, when I face lifes derisive and chaotic moments, I still feel the comfort and safety from the bite of it. My dad’s warm, calloused, strong, and yet gentle hands.

Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines. Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.
William Ray Moore was 23 years old when John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas; hours later, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in aboard Air Force One as the 36th President of the United States. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. He served at the height of the Cold War, and the majority of his presidency dealt with managing relations with the Soviet Union.

The Berlin Wall was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic, starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall cut off West Berlin from virtually all of surrounding East Germany and East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and finished in 1992. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, accompanied by a wide area that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses. The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in building a socialist state in East Germany.
