WHAT I’VE SEEN IN 8 DECADES

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY DECEMBER 2, 2022

    I WAS BORN EIGHTY YEARS AGO TODAY. A LOT HAS HAPPENED IN THOSE EIGHT DECADES. WORLD WAR TWO EVENTUALLY ENDED. THERE WERE WARS IN KOREA AND VIETNAM. AMERICAN ASTRONAUTS LANDED ON THE MOON. THERE WERE RACE RIOTS AND ANTI-WAR DEMONSTRATIONS IN THE 60S, WATERGATE IN THE 70’S AND REAGAN, WHO DOMINATED THE 80S. THE 90’S FEATURED CLINTON AND GINGRICH AND 2000 BEGIN WITH GEORGE W. BUSH AS PRESIDENT AND 9/11.

    NONE OF THIS – INCLUDING MY BIRTH – OCCURRED OUTSIDE OF GOD’S KNOWLEDGE AND CONTROL. AS A FRIEND ONCE SAID, “HISTORY IS HIS STORY,” MEANING JESUS.

    AS I WROTE IN YESTERDAY’S NEWSPAPER COLUMN, I HAVE BEEN PRIVILEGED TO MEET AND INTERVIEW SOME INCREDIBLE PEOPLE FROM DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS. I HAVE ALSO BEEN ABLE TO USE THIS PLATFORM GOD GAVE ME TO TELL OTHERS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE MY PROFESSION ABOUT JESUS. NO AWARD OR LEVEL OF PUBLIC APPROVAL COULD EXCEED THAT BLESSING.

SO, IT LOOKS LIKE I AM AT MY SELL-BY DATE, BUT ONLY GOD KNOWS HOW MANY MORE YEARS, MONTHS, WEEKS, DAYS, MINUTES AND SECONDS HE WILL ALLOW ME ON THIS EARTH. I INTEND TO MAKE THE MOST OF THEM FOR HIS GLORY. I’M CAL THOMAS.

    I have come to this post quite by accident. Jumping down the rabbit hole, so to speak.

    Thank you for your witness, and truth about time and experience.

    This is what a lot of us are missing; perspective.

    Because the keepers of time and experience (“journalists”)
    have now distorted this valuable lesson.

    “Shit Happens.”

    🤣🤣

    Thank again for your witness,, God bless.
