One would think that the passage of 25 years should be sufficient for most of us – at least those in average adult age ranges – to have some sense of what life will look like. The opening of the time capsule buried yards away from the Orange County Courthouse in 1995, however, gives a different picture. There was no mention of the Great Recession of 2008, the Coronavirus of 2020, or the siege of The Capitol by insurrectionists – all events which could be classified as 100-year floods. Buried, instead, were messages of optimism and abundance – a spirit we, as Americans, will want to recapture.
