Maybe Iave learned an important lesson and wonat do so next time. Like many older folks, I wanted to share what I have learned to be true and useful and couldnat seem to stay with a single topic. Iave lived long enough to confirm an important realization: the gleanings from a well-lived life are at least as important as knowledge gained vicariously through reading and classroom attendance. But I think most people donat fully appreciate the value of their life lessons and end up taking most of them to the grave. I want to counter that pattern and use this book to share as many of my gleanings as I can. I also recognize several imminent dangers facing this nation and our planet and feel compelled to share these concerns. Just as important: I want my wife, children, and grandchildren to know more about who I was and who Iave come to be.
