A Farmer's Son
Apr 05, 2010
I found your commentary of the loss of farming communities interesting. As the oldest son of a farmer/industrialist, who was the oldest son of a farmer. As the generations have gone so has the knowledge. Society is successful choking itself thin. Years ago the nation looked to farmers sons for their skills, from shooting to wrenching. With a spiritual connection to round out what defined the Farmers son. Sure, there are still some out there. Urban blight and technology has made our jobs easier, and cost us our jobs in the mean time.
As a journeyman Tool & Diemaker, I too, have been twice removed from farming and now industry. As our jobs have gone over seas. I thank God that I grew up in the community farms. Working for as many as three farms thru the course of a year. What of todays farm boys? Working for your neighbors, turning wrenches, being responsible......Our future as a nation. Farmers, I ask, give the neighbor kid a chance.
