anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor
You’ll notice the definition says “anything.” The legacy of past generations includes victories and mistakes. At our “Classics at Callaway” event back in 2013, we chose to celebrate the positive aspects of the 1940’s. We would never downplay the tragedy that was WWII and the Holocaust. Instead, we paid homage to what we felt was the positive legacy of that generation.
We feel the same way about our “Peace, Love, & MG” event this year. We understand the the 1960’s were an emotionally charged time. My parents were military, and I remember sitting down to watch the return of the POWs. What our military endured was heartbreaking. As with every generation, the lessons can be hard. I believe part of the legacy of the 60’s is that in 2015, every time my father goes out with his USAF Ret. hat on, people thank him for his service. Yes, we’ve made mistakes, but we’ve learned. The tragedy would be ignoring these turning points in our history.
For this year’s event, we choose to celebrate exactly what the name says… Peace, Love, & MG.
