John Wild

In a world of internet celebrities, re-enactors, people romanticizing about a time they never lived in, identifying themselves with a past generation, and supposed men acting like school girls, it doesn't take much to realize how brief and ostensibly insignificant our lives are and how seemingly foolish it all can be. Perspective is a hell of a thing. Self reflection can be a gift and a curse. The gift is humbling, the curse, well maybe that is for each of us to figure out? 

I don't know Mr. Wild, but his personal effects spoke volumes about a generation where working hard, raising a family and doing the best you can was reward enough.
