I was thinking about our parents this morning, Carolyn and mine. The two of us are now getting closer to their ages when they passed away. Thankfully, we are both still pretty healthy and we began self quarantining a week before the order was given.
Anyway, I got to thinking about what our folks might think about what this old world has come to. All four of them lived through almost all of the 20th century, births ranging from 1902 to 1911. One of them, Carolyn’s dad, even lived to see Y2K at age 92. They were part of what Tom Brokaw called “Our Greatest Generation.” Would they be looking down, shaking their heads in disgust, at the situation we find ourselves in today? I don’t think so.
