A voice recording on MediaFire

From Jeanne:
A year ago, Jack was in the hospital, and I’m trying to not think about that a whole lot, but anniversaries of significant events are hard to ignore.
One reason I am the luckiest person in the world is that I have a lot of recordings that Jack made. Some of them are our conversations, some are hospital commentary, lots are gratitude affirmations in which he covers most of the major events and people of his life, and some are of him reciting poetry.
I thought I’d share one recording with you which he made when he got the most recent voice recorder and was trying it out for the first time. He talks about what was going on in the world when he was born in 1943 and mentions a few details of very early childhood before he touches on a sad memory which makes him abruptly stop the recording. It’s a little over 6 minutes long. It’s an MP3 file which can be accessed by clicking “download” on the linked page.
