Celebrating Roaring 20’s Today & Remembering Grandparents Era Only Yesterday !

Updated on June 12, 2013

Honoring Our Gransparents as We Remember Their Era when They Were Kids--The Roaring 20's

Ok, so you are in your 40's or 50's may be or even in your 60's perhaps ? You got kids may be teens, 20's or 30's. Your Father or your Mom may be still alive if you are fortunate.

Yep, I know your grandma died few years ago. You do remember her don't you ? You had two sets, remember, on your father side, and the other on your mother's side. Chances are good you at least remember one side, right ?

Well, welcome to the Roaring 20's . If your grandparents were born in the 30's or earlier, they probably would have remembered that era better than you and me. So we now go back and remember some of the key features of the Roaring 20's culture that you may have seen in some of the movies, or on TV perhaps, not really remembering the way the times really were, I mean the music, the dance, the Gangsters, time of probhibition, and toward the end The Great Depression. But this was the time in between the two World Wars, memory of World War I may be fading now, but the Roaring 20's began just as World War I was ending.


A "Great Mind" Born in 1915 at Rural South Carolina Appalachia

As of this day, October 31, 2011 A "Great Mind" Still Alive Today !

I happen to know of a great scientist, whom I have interviewed and did a story on a book he wrote about the invention of the laser, a technology that is still very important for this decade now. Guess what, this "Great Mind", a Nobel Prize winner in Physics, was born as World War I was ending. His book, "How The Laser Happened, Adventures of a Scientist" contains his memory of his childhood years in the Roaring 20's in rural South Carolina where he grew up as a boy.

That's one way, I got interested in learning more about the Roaring 20's . In Rural South, the memory of Civil War and Reconstruction was still a painful community memory as was the difficult race relationships in Rural South. But that's another topic, for another day. Aside from being a "great mind" in science,Charles Town is also a leading scholar on the topic of "science and religion". His last years have been dedicated to radio astronomy as I understand.

Now let us journey into that past time perioud and unique culture of the Roaring 20's as we can remember now through our American Memory Book, via music, dance, dress, and other features that are still in our memorybook that cannot fade.

Grandpas and Grandmas who live in our memorybooks, hopefully to be passed to the next generation now waiting in the wings to take over the leadership role of this nation in a new era rapidly decending upon us !

      I absorbed a lot of knowledge from my grandparents and I hope my children will do so from their grandmother who is still alive. Stories, tradition and little pieces of happiness that made the big difference of today's madness. Adorable lens:=)

      My maternal grandparents were a young married couple in the 1920s. I was blessed to grow up hearing their wonderful, amazing stories so put their lives into a book as a way of honoring them.

      Love this lens.

      I think it is extremely important to pass these family stories down through the generations. Making them into a book is one way to preserve them.
