Web Site Dedication

This website, although designed for all seniors and their families, is dedicated to those 85 years old and older (The Oldest of The Old in Our Society) born in 1925 and earlier.  Their courage, wisdom, hard work and dedication to God, family and country makes us proud to be their descendants.   

This awesome generation is responsible for settling the central and western parts of our country, turning prairies and forest into farm land and pastures, and the United States into the bread basket of the world.  They are responsible for the industrial revolution, the internal combustion engine, electricity, indoor plumbing and almost every modern convenience we enjoy today.  They harnessed rivers, built railroads and interstate highway systems from coast to coast.  They began space exploration and walked on the moon.   They started off in horse drawn buggies and ended up in jet liners and rocket ships .  Many people of this generation contributed significantly to what we now call the computer and information age. 

Members of this generation are responsible for the finest medical advancements the world has ever seen. These advancements have increased our life expectancy by 30 years.  They discovered vaccines against polio, mumps, measles and diphtheria.  They ended the plagues of bubonic and scarlet fever, and made many other diseases controllable, treatable and preventable.

These men and women built a financial system that affords us the highest standard of living the world has ever seen.  They made the United States the most free, most prosperous and most generous country in the world.

And what's more, they did it all while dealing with two major depressions in 1920 and 1929.  Two World Wars, the Koran War and the Vietnam War were fought to stop the aggressions of cruel dictators who were killing millions of people and attempting to enslave millions more.  This generation is directly responsible for freedom around the world.

These are just a few of the accomplishments of this Super Generation.   If you are fortunate enough to know someone 85 years old or older, cherish their wisdom, enjoy their company and encourage them to tell their story.  If you don't have a senior in your life it's easy to meet one at any assisted living facility or nursing home if for no other reason than to say THANK YOU.   If they ask for what? 

Just say, everything.......!
