As someone over 50, I can tell you that my little corner of the world was a much kinder, gentler place. Violence was not at the level that it is today; people were less pushy and more polite; when you called a business the phone was answered by a real person who valued your business; you could count on your neighbour in times of trouble; you could breathe the air, drink the water, and eat the produce without fear.
Sometimes, progress isn't everything it's cranked up to be.
MUCH BETTER THAN NOW PEOPLE THINK JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE A MICROWAVE ,A SPACE SHUTTLE, A CAR AND CABLE THAT WE ARE IN GOOD STANDING ,BUT TO MUCH OF ANYTHING IS NOT GOOD, UNLESS IS'T LOVE .
Not as isolated as we tend to find ourselves now. We actually knew our neighbors. People were not so full of fear. Marriage and family were considered a high priority. Education was not an option.
