  •  Sending Charlotte my very best thoughts and (6+ / 0-)

    wishes for less pain and more good days...

    If you read this Charlotte, I'd like you know how much reading your tales of America that was has meant to me.

    I'm 50 now.

    I remember watching President Nixon resign, live on the television in the summer of 1974.

    I remember my parents getting their first color tv in 1972.

    I remember watching Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin step foot on the Moon, live on the little, round television screen in my aunt's green living room on July 20, 1969.

    I remember watching the nightly news coverage of our soldiers in Vietnam, being air-lifted on helicopters, bleeding and dying.

    I remember watching Star Trek on Monday nights when it was first broadcast on television.

    But compared to the history which you've seen and been a part of?

    My, oh my.

    Thank you for sharing with all of us.

      It does seem strange to think about what's happened in our lifetimes.  It was odder still when I tried to calculate what fraction of the county's history is spanned by Charlotte's life.  Puts a lot of things in perspective.  We surely are a young country...
