I learned a long time ago that we accomplish very little all by ourselves. No matter what we undertake to do, we invariably rely on the help of other people, one way or another, somewhere in the process.
Today, we still have radio and telephone – each very much advanced but telegraph collapsed in Canada on May 30th, 1972, and our beautiful language died. In the ‘40s and ‘50s, I worked and conversed in Morse code every day. For those born after 1972, Morse code was an electrical language people used to communicate with one another all over the world. I left it in the final decade of its life.
