Resume Of Life

Once again we are reminded of the fact that everyone is born to die. The recent death of former president George H. W. Bush and all of the media attention surrounding his life. The nation will now go into a period of mourning and remembrance of a life well lived. Mr. Bush was a prolific writer during his life and like those who served in the highest office in the land before him, he will have a presidential library to store and display all of his personal writings over his lifetime.

The personal and public documents are a resume of a man’s life forever preserved for future generations to study and admire. Mr. Bush earned that distinction. We all have the opportunity to add to our personal journal of life experiences every day. Many years have passed since I have written or received a handwritten letter. I’m sure most of those reading this blog can understand that reality. The use of printed materials continues to decline in modern society causing us to depend on the digital world to store our information.

I have come to the conclusion that one should not only store important documents such as wills, mortgages, insurance policies etc. We all need to organize our personal papers in printed form for future generations of our individual families to read and understand our life and times. If you think about it personal journals have in the past produced both movies and best seller books for the enjoyment and education of society. We all have a story to tell but first, we should write it down for prosperity.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
