Yes, there are a lot of positive things that happened in our lifetime. I wonder what our ancestors would think about the crime in our country today. Car-jacking, home invasions, muggings and identity theft and an assortment of other crimes.
My dad as well...1887-1970
I was thrilled that he lived long enough to see man land on the moon as his
address to his graduating class at Brown in 1910 was about Life on Mars!
I was also glad that he was spared seeing Richard Nixon resign the
Presidency, as he did so on what would have been my dad's 84th b'day, August 9th. We
did not share the same political views and I am afraid I would have had a
hard time not saying I told you so! hahaha

YES, Mill -- what an interesting place to be with regard to what they
saw. I may have mentioned here before, I did a timeline on my
gr.grandmother's life -- from 1879 to 1965 --- it was fascinating to see
what she was alive for. Actually six or seven pages of events and her
age during them. Totally cool.
Stay well all -- Terri
