Talkin' About My Generation
I once dreamed big dreams.
I taught school and quoted Ghandi and King and Susan B. Anthony, spreading seeds of inspiration like an idealistic Johnny Appleseed.
I married and raised children. Paying the mortgage took priority over planting my forest of dreams.
Now I'm retired. I golf and sell Extended Health Care to my peers.
