Parallels 32 Years Later

Where were you? What were you doing? Were you an "odd" or "even" for the gas lines? Did your car run out of gas waiting your turn? Were you pulling your hair out by the roots in a state of malaise? Were you concerned Jimmy Carter would make good on his threats to the arrogant Soviets about boycotting the summer games because of their invasion of Afghanistan? Did you imagine 32 years later our young troops would be in Afghanistan hoping for miracles from moment to moment just to make it home alive? Were you wondering if/when the American hostages in Iran would be released ... and exactly where would Iran be decades later on the world stage? Were you eager for the next presidential election?

Do YOU believe in miracles?
