If you think about it, the majority of people growing up in the 70's and 80's were part of the "Me" generation. Their parents typically didn't attend church or participate in civic organizations, both parents worked full-time, and what little extra time was spent relaxing or as "family time."
More than one generation is out there that doesn't really know how to give back. They were never taught
Obviously, there are exceptions. It's truly a shame that organizations that should be important to many just don't fit into our busy lives.
How about this generation raise the "We" generation, who care about the people around them, and realize that success isn't measured by the size of your bank account or the square footage of your house -- it's measured by the size of your heart.
Just my opinion.
AND A DAMN GOOD OPINION IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF..

IT'S A GOOD WAY TO FIND OUT ABOUT THIS TOWN TO. SOME OF THE HISTORY OF IT FROM FOLKS THAT HAVE LIVED HERE FOR YEARS. IT'S KINDA LIKE READING A HISTORY BOOK AT TIMES AND I FIND IT QUAINT.
Hey Sad Little Podunk Town, if you are interested in Braidwood's history, you need to take a trip to the Fossil Ridge Library. They have a great book there, I think it's called "The Braidwood Story" or something like that.(the librarians can help you out) Anyway, it's an old, old book but very interesting. It's filled with information on the first people who settled here, the miners, etc. Check it out...
