About David Dilley

I grew up in the 60s and spent most of my teenage years playing in rock-n-rolls groups and experimenting with hallucinogenic drugs. I attended college in several locations but after earning over 166 credit hours I never obtained a degree because I changed majors 8 times. Through several people I had known I came to work and live at the PTL property run by the Bakers in South Carolina. After the public downfall of the PTL organization I begin working in the computer field and wound up in a high paying corporate job. I spent 10 years with a major telecommunications company, but was eventually laid off and had to scramble to find work. After the millennium I built a computer service business but watched it fail during the economic downturn. In the most recent past I have lived in a camper at several national parks and on a friend’s property but have not really had a permanent address for at least the last 10 years of my life.

Outstanding stories from the Generations Wars of the 1960s.

The story told here by David Dilley cannot leave you indifferent. Depending on whether you are male or female, it will probably affect the way you view his young life but as a mother of three, it left me feeling sad.
He has obviously thought about his past a good deal because he has written it well enough that it kept me reading until the end.
For me, he captured the mood of the 60's in this short story.
