(born between 1925 and 1945)
“[W]e survived two of the most horrific events in world history – the Great Depression and World War II. And we didn’t merely survive them, we learned at least three lessons from them – the rewards of hard work, the importance of making personal sacrifice for the common good, and the value of accepting personal responsibility. These attributes made us very self-reliant.”
