War babies

Fifty Years Ago: Hard to Believe!

Yesterday I realized that it's been 50 years since I graduated from college.  50 years!  Could I even have been  alive 50  years ago?  I am not a red wood tree, or an ancient tortoise.  I'm the same person I was when I was twelve years old.  So how could I be thinking about going to my 50th class reunion in April. I'm just a baby. To be precise, a war baby.  One of those born just before the ending of World War II, a time and culture so different from today one wonders how we got here.
