The London Daily Mail says research proves that statement. In my opinion, the extra four years only seem longer, because the true believers spend so much time on their knees praying.
In a couple of weeks I’ll be 93, and the only time I’ve ever offered serious knee kneeling prayer was during World War 2. That’s when my Navy troop ship carried GIs into the invasion of the Philippines and Marines into Iwo Jima. Then I fervently prayed I’d make it to my 20th birthday.
