I was born when Ike was President and we had a portrait of Ike at home when I was a small child And I learned how to read when I was two years old so one of my earliest memories is of looking at that portrait of Ike with his words written at the bottom I shall go to Korea So I remember a different kind of America way back in the late 1950s when our house would only fly the flag a few times a year such as special days like the 4th of July and Memorial Day when we would fold up the flag respectfully until the next patriotic holiday Compare that today with all those false American conservatives who dishonour the flag by flying a little plastic flag on their car antennas And I remember too- as recently as the late 1970s - how special it was on every Memorial Day Parade to talk to the old veterans of the Spanish-American-War and of the First World War So very precious it was to meet and to talk with those old heroic vets of a bygone age I was born in Ikes time but I was also around when some former American slaves were still living My friends at cheathouse if you have never known anything about what SOME parts of America were like before 1980 then I feel sorry for you Yes it is true the cancer started around 1945 But the cancer did not take over the whole country until the last 20 years or so when the cancer of development developed even further Sweet Lord Jesus I am less than 30 years older than Posh Spice However I remember going to the Farmers Market near where I grew up and listening to stories about the Civil War from sons of Civil War vets In addition listening to old stories from wonderful old men and women born in the 1800s
