The Greatest Generation

“For some men, nothing is written unless they write it.”  From Lawrence of Arabia.
WWII

According to the wise one, Tom Brokaw, the WWII generation was the best the country ever had. While I agree that that generation did step up to the plate and accept the challenge that time and circumstance thrust upon them, I can’t accept his proclamation. To do so is to completely ignore the contributions of every generation of Americans.

Generation Mayflower

MAYFLOWER

George Washington generation

VALLEY FORGE

Thomas Jefferson generation

JEFFFERSON

Civil War generation

CIVILWAR

Civil Rights generation (My generation)

CIVIL RIGHTS

And so on.

These just scratch the surface. Every generation of Americans has contributed something significant to what we call home………….the greatest country on the planet.

And, as is always the case, each generation has accepted the challenge with vision, courage, and sacrifice.

Not sure why I’m rambling on like this and I  hope it doesn’t come across as a rant.

Maybe I just  like to disagree with Brokaw.

What say you Mr. Brokaw?
