Serving Illinois and Wisconsin

As a follow up to a post from last month - I wanted to share what Mr. Bouey had to say about his recent trip to the Inauguration of President Barack Obama...“I felt born again,” said Alfred Bouey, resident ofHolley Court Terrace, a Brookdale senior living community in Oak Park,Ill.“I never dreamed this day would ever happen in Americanhistory. I have witnessed not only my greatest wish, but also the dreamof my parents,” said Bouey, the grandson of slaves. “I’m still on cloudnine,” he said.Bouey began to get excited the morning he and his familyleft for Washington, D.C. Once they arrived at the hotel, that’s whenit hit him; he would be witnessing history in the making.The most memorable part of the trip was seeing PresidentObama taking the oath. “I felt pure joy,” said Bouey. “Tears wereflowing all around me, and down my cheeks as well.”What a joyful story to tell. For this whole story and other inspiring stories of seniors who get to live out their dream, go to Brookdales Experience of a Lifetime Page.
