This is so true !! 🙂👌


A youngster asked his grandfather -
Grandpa! How did you people live before with:


No technology
No aeroplanes
No internet
No computers
No dramas
No TVs
No aircons
No cars
No mobile phones?


Grandpa replied:
"Just like how your generation live today with:


No prayers
No compassion
No honor
No respect
No character
No shame
No modesty


We, the people born between 1930 - 1970, or by extension to 1979.
are really the blessed ones...


Our life is a living proof:


👉 While playing and riding "rented" bicycles in our youth,
we never wore helmets.


👉 After school,
we played until dusk; we never watched TV.


👉 We played with real friends,
not internet friends.
       
👉 If we ever felt thirsty,
we drank public tap water not bottled water.
           
 👉 We never got ill sharing the same glass of juice with four friends.
           
👉 We never gained weight eating plates of rice and eba everyday.
             
👉 Nothing happened to our feet despite roaming barefoot. Very few shoes!


👉 We never used any vitamin supplements to keep ourselves healthy.
             
👉 We used to create our own toys and play with them.
             
 👉 Most parents were not rich. They gave love .. not worldly material things.
             
👉 We never had cellphones, DVDs, play station, XBox, video games, personal computers, internet, chat - but we had real friends.


 👉 We visited our friend's home uninvited and enjoyed their meals with them.


👉 We holidayed with relations & relatives lived close by, so family time was enjoyed.
           
👉 We may have been priviledged to appear in black and white photos, but you can find colourful memories in those photographs.


👉 We are a unique and most understanding generation, because we are the last generation who respected & listened to our own parents .... AND also the first generation who have to listen to their own children.


We are a LIMITED edition! Learn from us, treasure us and enjoy us while we are still much around..
