I've been watching the, "Into the West" series on television and it got me to thinking (does anyone percieve a burning smell?). Folks who lived during, and served in World War II have become known as, "The Greatest Generation." Now I don't want to belittle the sacrifices and contributions of these fine folks, I have a great deal of respect for them, but what about those people who sacrificed everything to settle this country in the first place? Imagine leaving whatever security you had to cross an ocean to scratch and fight for your life here and to eke out an existence in an unknown, hostile, wilderness. Who deserves the title, "The Greatest Generation?" I will say that the WWII generation has been, IMHO, the last noble people, as a whole, and we have been going to **** in a handbasket ever since.
