Where have the men of history gone. Why haven’t we been reading about them. How have they become so few, so rare. The extinction era of our time must have surpassed animals in the wild to include free thinkers, leaders, defenders of truths, builders of intelligent positive progress in humanity. Where are the true father figures both kind and strong, firm and patient, smart enough to grab opportunity and get their names written in history. Good bye the time of grace and kindness of spontaneity and foresight of bravery and courage. We have been reduced to shadows of men. Were we ever great? We can be great now if not only for missed chances.
