Those of us born during the war or shortly thereafter were faced with such an insurmountable struggle it is truly a miracle that any of us survived. We didnt have big government, we didnt have welfare, food stamps were far in the future. there was no Environmental Protection Agency to send out armies of hippies to protect us from ourselves. When we grew up in the 40s, 50s and early 60s we were alone in the universe. There was no NSA to be our "BIG BROTHER". Of course, there was Russia and the bombers and the atom bombs. We learned to wait for "The Flash" then fall beneath our school desks and cover our necks. Then everything would be alright. We did it though. Made it.

How did we do it?
