The Science of the "Silent Generation" is the "lever" which moved us to where we are today. Their "character" was the force that worked the levers of Science.
The philosophy, their refusal to accept "unconscionable court" decisions, and their power of connection to God delivered us into the splendid world we see before us now, yet not unaware of the evil still existing among us today.
Their efforts around objects "electrical," gave us telephones, and transistors all the way up to the Internet, due to their splendid work. And TED reached the World in the 1980’s.
They came into South and North America from Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, leaving their elders behind, but “thankful” to their parents for education they had equipped them with. Brave minds and hearts moved them to come to the Americas.
Their young children of ages, 18, returned to the East to liberate Europe from the Evil of Nazism. They died and were buried abroad in the Countries where they fought.
This all being said about the Silent Generation we still have Evil in the world today with all the entrails of Suffering.
And the “present generations” must recognize that, “The Silent Generation” did the work while they were silent. They talked to God and silently did what had to be done to get us where we are today. They led the battle for Good! They fought the evils of their times!
The Internet is a powerful “Tool” to communicate; will it be where we will find todays Leaders of Good and overcome the Evils of today! Will the Internet be all Talk and no force for action?
We need to find touch, and intimacy in our own small villages, otherwise we will become paralysed with Excruciating loneliness, in the inter-Internet-Cafe’s where we go for a talk and a ‘Fix.’
I cry out as a Piper “Overcome Evil.” Give the poor and suffering their daily bread and heal them!
Move into action, and fight the evils of our times!
From a Great Grand Parent from the Silent Generation,
My love to all of you,
