A century

50 years ago, I was 7 years old and my grandparents and their friends talked about the two great wars of the twentieth century. When they spoke of their recollections of WWI, 50 years before, it seemed like an absurdly and unimaginably long time ago.

Well, here I am remembering events from a half century ago that recalled events from a half century before THAT.

In a way, this is "remembering" things from 100 years ago.
