History Nugget #8: February 2019

“Nor were they just like we are. Their present was part of a different time, and because of that, they were different from us. We have to take into consideration, for example, all they had to contend with that we don’t even have to think about- all the inconveniences, discomforts, and fears. And the hard, hard work.”

McCullough, David. The American Spirit: Who We Are and What We Stand For. (New York: Simon & Schuster, 2017). p. 87.

    I need to remind people not to judge the past while looking through 21st Century eyes. It was a different world.

      It certainly was. Remarkable changes have taken place in just my lifetime (60 years). Different pressures and expectations. Thank you sir.
