I had a chance encounter with an amazing 93 year old woman in the grocery store today. Her husband fought in WWII and Korea. She told me that they are horrified by the state of world affairs and especially with all the contention in the US. She stated that she just didn’t know how we would recover. I said the following
“We use the lessons learned from WWI and WWII – we work together.”
This sweet lady was momentarily stunned by my answer and then a huge grin formed on her face as she nodded.
“Yes,” she agreed, “we work together rather than try to stand alone.”
