Generational Change

One of my teachers once told me, your first political memory marks the most forward point of your greatest historical amnesia. Everything in the years just before that will always be a little mysterious.

My first political memory: the fall of Saigon.

Jane's first political memory: Barack Obama becomes the 44th President of the US.

Times change. Sometimes, even for the better. It is more than a little consolation that Jane will remember nothing of Bush 43.
