My goal was to tell my story like it is, from my perspective. I did not intend to embarrass or expose anyone, but I have.For the most part, my younger life parallels millions of others from what is now called the greatest generation. We are on our way out now, but because were tough, many of us are still trying to be useful, to contribute something. We were designed to take care of the tasks of our generation, reaching adulthood in the throes of World War II, filled with patriotism and hope for the future of the greatest nation on Earth.It is only recently that all of those molds have been dissolved in a determined effort to express individuality- some say its the Aquarian Age.
