Highlights from 2016 so far: The Good News and Pivotal Facts by Journalists

Oh boy, as my dear friend used to say. He, Milton Rogovin, died 18 days into 2011. The last time we lunched was December 29, a day or so before his 101st birthday party. His adored wife Anne entered eternity in 2003. Anne and Milton worked for peace and justice, using their talents to raise awareness of people who too many people ignore: “The Forgotten Ones,” which became the title one of Milton’s books.

This loving couple, both artists and activists, documented their work to raise awareness and strengthen the universal consciousness that knows the way to heaven is through practicing The Golden Rule. Anne wrote books that were introduced by Dr. Benjamin Spock and Ed Asner about helping children learn how to live with developmental wiring/physical problems.

Milton, after losing his job as an optometrist because Wisconsin’s Joe McCarthy publicly accused Milton at a House of Un-American Activities Committee meeting because he had attended some Communist meetings. A friend of ours introduced us in 2001 and we quickly that our spirits were were kindred, documenting ways to help drive justice for all, bastion of sanity and safety.

The Rogovins marched — and voted, even in their wheelchair years.
