ABC Wednesday "S" is for "Senior in the sun"

This old man, walking along hands in his pockets, was deeply absorbed in thought, and I wonder if he appreciated the warm sunlight and the beautiful sky. Life isn't easy for old people just about anywhere, and pensions are shrinking....

Check out other S's on ABC WEDNESDAY.
