One of the benefits of age is the perspective that comes with age. My lifetime encompasses half the period from the middle of Ulysses Grant's presidency to the present. I remember sitting with my grandmother on her porch and listening to her tell about the day in 1900 when her grandmother died after waiting in vain for 36 years for my great great grandfather to return from the Civil War. And I look forward to the PBS American Experience episode tonight in part as my own story. We are indeed complex beings.
