The incident involving wrestler Cristian Dominguez epitomizes the chasm between the Now Generation and the Greatest Generation.
Tom Brokaw writes of Dr. Van Gorder on the D-Day 1944 landing, “Finally, I was so tired my head fell down into an open abdomen. He was ordered to go back to his tent for some rest. En route, a soldier offered him hot chocolate, a German bomb hit his tent, demolishing it. It was the first of many narrow escapes for Dr. Van, as he was called.”
Perhaps the wrestler incident is only one of many narrow escapes for Cristian and for the school. One thing for sure, it’s still Almighty God that works things to the good. At least the Greatest Generation served others, always stood up to their responsibility. The Now Generation has little or no interest in serving, only in finding someone to blame. Is it any wonder that the Greatest Generation trembles in their twilight years at the prospect of turning this great nation over to such self-centeredness? Was D-Day, and all that the Greatest Generation gave, worth the sacrifice? Lord have mercy!
