Put the Pieces Together! Dorothy Buchanan, Dorothy Murray, and Dorothy Kern, together referred to as the Three Dots, have just commemorated a significant achievement. All three women hail from the same hometown.
The three close friends all celebrated their 100th birthdays this year, so to say that they have been friends for a very long time would be an understatement.
When the three close friends were born in Auburn, Maine in 1919, the world was a very different place. Women had just been awarded the right to vote.
A newborn girl born in 1919 had a 1.9 percent chance of surviving to be 100 years old. Dot Murray remembered the challenging times global economic contraction that began in 1929 and lasted until the late 1930s. In the early 1930s, Murray said, “Times were tight, but we made it. All in all, we couldn’t spend much because we didn’t have much.”
Later in life, she aided her husband in the operation of his company while working as a secretary. The key to the city was presented to Murray by the mayor of Auburn on the occasion of her 100th birthday, “I felt that was sort of a huge deal,” she said.
The three friends have a lot in common, but one of those things is their love of reading and music. All three of them like singing as well.
” As the 100th year of our existence comes to a conclusion, it seems that everyone is in excellent health and feeling well,” Murray said, “I do not have any aches or pains. I drive, i continue to carry out all of my responsibilities in the same manner that I always do.
Buchanan expresses genuine amazement and asks, “Why do they allow you drive at 100? – Murray said, “Because I haven’t been in any accidents. They are unable to stop me. I’m still a good driver.”
The three people who have been friends for their whole lives have some insightful advice to provide after having lived through a century. Kern she wishes that people will slow down and pay attention to matters that affect the whole world, such as climate change.
Buchanan expresses his desire for tolerance by urging listeners to “accept other people for what they are.”
Because no two people are exactly the same. Murray shared her remarks, with a particular worry for the dividing political ideas that are prevalent in the nation at this time, stressing the need to “Get along. Beloved, love one another”
