Such a journal sounds like a wonderful idea.

That's probably not a bad idea, and I do understand what you're saying. But I feel compelled to be somewhat cynical in stating that the 'next' generation seems to give very little concern to history . . . anyone's history . . . and are only focused on the now. Often I myself have thought "If I knew then what I know now." I am over 50, but I don't have any children. However, I do have many, many nieces and nephews, and have, on occasion, given them a few 'nuggets of knowledge' that I thought might help them to understand certain things, relying solely on my own personal experiences. Whether they actually stuck or not is another matter entirely. Those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it, and sometimes I'm afraid that's exactly what we're witnessing now . . .
