“The first generation tries to preserve, the second generation tries to forget, the third generation tries to remember.”

I heard this statement yesterday on a Public Television program. It was a program that was about the Jewish people, their traditions and their celebrations. All of us in our lives, if we live long enough become all three generations. At around the age of twelve or thirteen I became aware of my generation. I did not start out trying to preserve anything, I wanted to forget what my parents and grandparents were about and thought I had found something new in life. I thought my generation was different than any before. The next stage was in my late twenties when I realized that it was cool the way my parents were raised, and I admired what my grandparents were about. Like a lot of things in my life that I’ve had to learn by doing them backwards, I am at the stage were I want to preserve my beliefs and what I know about my parents and grandparents. Today as I sit and look out my window I see a piece of ground that my great-grandparents sweat over just to survive. With each generation it got a little easier. Today I mow it like a yard and go to Wal-mart to get my stuff. I want to still preserve the memory of those who put a lot of sweat into life so that I could be comfortable. Today I work on gratitude, it keeps me sober. Thanks for letting me share, God surely is doing for me what I could not do for myself………………..wolf
