Homework
Classics and military history scholar Victor Hanson is a senior fellow with the Hoover Institution. He lives in central California on the xx farm his great great grandparents homesteaded in 1870. Outside his window are 40 acres planted with Thompson seedless grapes that will go to market as raisins. It is in this house and on his land that Hanson finds the source of his conviction.

I believe we are not alone. Even if I am on the other side of the world from the farm house I live in, I still dream of the ancient vines of the window and the shed out back that my grandfather’s father built in 1870 with eucalyptus trunks. As long as I can recreate these images, I never quite leave home. I don’t think farming in the same place for six generations is a dead way that keeps you shackle, doing the identical thing year in and year out. Instead, it is a rare link to others’ before me who pruned the same vines and painted the same barn that I have. If those in this house survive the panic of 1893, or the Great Depression, or bathed with cold water or used an outhouse. And surely I know I can weather high gas prices. I believe that all of us need some grounding in a modern world of constant moving, buying, selling, meeting and leaving. Some find constancy in religion, others lean on friends or community for permanence. But we need some daily signpost that we are not novel, not better, not worse from those who came before us. For me, this house, this farm, these ancient vines are those roots. Although I came into this world alone and will live alone, I’m not alone. There are xx of dozens of conversations in the hallways, stories that I remember about buying new plows that now rust in the barnyard, and xx crops in the same vines we are now harvesting. I believe all of this are natural links in the long chain of being. I need to know what time a day it is, what season is coming, whether the wind is blowing north or from east, and the moon is still full tomorrow night, just as the farmers who came before me did. The physical world around us changes constantly, human nature does not. We must struggle in out brief existence to find some transcendent meaning during reoccurring heartbreaking disappointment, so find solace and knowledge that our ancestors have all gone through this before. You may find all that lead to a truth, living with a path just pressing. I find it exhilarating. I believe there’s an old answer for every new problem, that wise whispers of the past are with us to assure us that we just listen and remember we are not alone. We have been here before.

Victor Hanson with his essay for This I Believe. Hanson told us he hopes his son, William, will succeed him in tending the farm.
