and it can be stated also
that many will be considered trailblazers by their fellows
only to be discredited, if not forgotten, by generations that follow

    I’ve heard much talk of his book ” All the Light We Cannot See” but haven’t gotten a chance to read it yet. Moving it up the list of the other must reads. Thanks Maggie, I hope you’re doing all right 🙂
