Ain’t Down Yet

March 23, 2011

“Fix it!”

That was an admonition from my daughter to my generation, a reminder that we cannot sit back and wait for the next generation to change the world, to fix the problems we created and those we inherited. Made me think of this quote from Richard Bach’s Illusions: “Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you’re alive, it isn’t.”

(It was really good to see her this weekend!)

Off to change my little corner of the world!

But till I leave the rear, it’s from the rear you’ll hear, “I ain’t down yet.” ~ from The Unsinkable Molly Brown, music & lyrics by Meredith Wilson
