I grew up in America’s sweet spot in the 1950’s and 60’s. Our parents had a lot of kids otherwise known as baby boomers which was a reaction to the killing of millions during WW2 coupled with America’s emergence as world leader. We had lots of hand me downs and casseroles. Very few TV’s but plenty of freedom to play outside on our own.
I wouldn’t trade my growing up experience with my kids or grandkids for a million bucks. To be sure they had plenty of chips and sodas that turned them into pre-diabetic couch potatoes, while playing games on their I-Pads. But my generation was thinner because we were running around outside playing games that we invented. My kids and Grandkids have no idea what they missed out on and that is too bad!
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
