8. They saw a whole lot of history!

They were born while the Great Depression was still going on, they saw WWII, Korea, Cuban Missile Crisis, JFK assassinated, Vietnam, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. assassinated, the first moon landing, Watergate, Iran Contra, Gulf War, Clinton impeached, The Bush Fiasco, the Financial Collapse in 2007, our First African-American President, and too many other things to mention.

I think they had more of a right to throw off the shackles than any of the rest of us; it's amazing that more of them didn't!
