THE BEGINNING OF THE ENDING
It has been over eighty years since
I was born. During that life span,
the following events occurred:
The ending of the great depression
of the twentieth century, World War II,
the Korean War, the Viet Nam War, the
mid-east wars (still in progress).
With the exception of the mid-east wars,
all events mentioned above now fall under
the cliche'd heading of "This too shall pass."
And even now as I write coronavirus, I believe,
with the whole world up in arms against this
pandemic, its days are surely numbered.
