I agree with you, Donna....having been around a pretty long time myself. I remember my 22 year old self, worrying about the Cuban Missile crisis. I remember JFK'S death. I remember hearing gun shots in Hamilton, Ohio, when I had baby/or babies in the apartment, & see the police chasing a guy in a car, both exchanging bullets. (Why did we look out?)
One thing that I have also learned...over a long lifetime, is to "keep on keeping on". OR, as the Brits would say, "Keep calm & carry on!"
This that we are experiencing online/TV/radio, etc., is one more devastating happening. Sometimes, I think about some of the pioneers, & their travails, i.e., dealing with outlaws, gunfights, people who want what you have, and so on. What we have on our plates today, is not much in comparison to the plague, or the 1918 world flu pandemic. Even in comparison to our parents dealing with the Great Depression, as my own parents did, with one child, & living off their garden. No wonder, my dad was "tight" with his money. Joan
