Image – “A Young Boy Asks His Grandfather”

Dec 3, 2023

A young Boy asked his grandfather, “Grandpa, how did you live in the past without technology . . .
without computers,
without Internet connection,
without TVs,
without air conditioners,
without cars,
no cell phones?”

Grandpa answered:
“As your generation lives today . . .
there are no prayers,
there is no compassion,
there is no respect,
no real education,
there is no personality,
there is no shame at all,
there is no modesty,
there is no honesty.
We, the people born between the years 1940-1980, were the blessed ones. Our lives are a living proof.”

  • While playing and riding a bike, we have never worn a helmet.
  • Before school then we played and again after school until dusk and hardly ever watched television.
  • We played with real friends, not virtual friends.
  • If we were thirsty, we would drink tap water, or water from the hose, not mineral water.
  • We never worried even as we shared the same cup of juice with four friends.
  • We never gained weight by eating plates of pasta every day.
  • Nothing happened to our feet despite roaming barefoot.
  • We never used food supplements to stay healthy.
  • We used to make our own toys and play with them.
  • Our parents were not rich. They gave love, not stuff.
  • We never had a cell phone, DVD, game console, Xbox, video game, PC, internet, chat . . . but we had true friends.
  • We visited our friends without being invited and shared and enjoyed the food with them.
    Parents lived nearby to take advantage of family time.
  • We may have had black and white photos, but you can find colorful memories in these photos.
  • We are a unique and the most understanding generation, because we are the last generation that listened to their parents.
    And we are also the first ones who were forced to listen to their children.
  • We are a limited edition!

Take advantage of us. Learn from us. We are a treasure destined to disappear soon.
