Visionaries in the next generation?

Good morning, Netizens...

Yesterday one of America's truly great visionaries, Steve Jobs who made the Apple Computer stand tall along with the Iphone, Ipad, Imac and Itunes that he created, died of cancer.

I am not going to tread heavily upon the passage of Jobs, for there are enough plaudits and praises already being heaped upon his head nearly everywhere you look. He was a profoundly creative man, who turned his ideas into one of America's biggest corporations and did so with class and reverence for his family.

Yet, in retrospect, I cannot help but observe that in our great country we are watching the demise of visionaries, that we no longer are seeing new utopian thinkers entering society, much less are we seeing men and women of such moral stature.

Having used Apple computer products for over several decades, I must maintain a high degree of reverence for everything Steve Jobs created in his life. He will be sorely missed, and I wonder when or if a new generation of visionaries will appear to take his place.
