Paul. Amen brother. Very well said. The wife and I wish you a very happy birthday. I was hoping that I would run into you one of these days at B. Street or somewhere else. Maybe the 50th reunion God willing? Thank you for the many years of keeping those of us without facebook or my space abreast of what's going on with our old friends and classmates. God bless you. Jo & Andy Wendland, '67.

Happy birthday, dear Paul. Like fine wine, we get better with age (unless we turn into vinegar)! - Betsy, '65

On my birthday in 2015, I reflect. It’s astonishing to us that we’re in our late 60s or early 70s now, and I know one reason why. We were born in a somewhat stable time in history, when the rate of yearly change was still something we as human beings could fathom. We knew our grandparents and their friends who fought in the First World War, who lived in the 19th Century, and grew up without cars and sometimes without electricity. We understood their way of life, and we were born only seventy or eighty years after the American Civil War, only thirty years after World War One. Therefore we grew up with a sense of history and somewhat gradual change on a human scale. We remember when Fullerton was a little town, more rural than suburban.
 
But the wheels of change had started to move about the time we were born, and soon after they began to spin more or less out of control. The pace of change became more and more unfathomable, suited to machines but not to people. By the 1960s, the Orange County world we were born into was disappearing fast. By the 1970s, it was gone. Since then, we’ve been living on the site of a lost civilization.
 
That’s an experience unique in human history. We’re the last generation to remember a traditional past. I’m grateful for that. Today, we see a century worth of change every decade. It’s been hard for us to cope with that, and hard for us to hold onto the values our parents taught us.
 
The world now makes me think of an old silent movie sequence of a runaway train without brakes. I’m still optimistic, and maybe this is the direction ordained for us all.  As I celebrate my birthday, though, I’m happy and grateful to have all of you as my friends.
 
Remember, if we were tortoises, we’d have another one hundred years to look forward to!
