Dancing Queen

My family attended a family wedding last weekend. We had the pleasure to spend some time with my wife's two great aunts. One is 90 and the other is 94. When the band at the reception started playing "Dancing Queen" both of them were on the dancefloor with three other generations dancing to this rediscovered hit. I once again was reminded why Tom Brokaw called them "the greatest generation". They survived The Great Depression, Hitler, the civil strife of the 60's, and many other challenges. And now in their 90's, they're dancing queens. I hope that our generation, when challenged, can still find time to dance.....especially with three generations in tow!
