The previous generation is the group of people that are growing old as we speak. They are the group of people that have worked hard their whole life. They started young, at an age were the most of you would say-That is way too early. They had to .They did not have any choice. They did not live with the comfort that the most of us take for granted, like TV ore computers ore videogames. For them leisure time was to play in the woods ore craft something. For them important things were other things than we feel is important for us today. I think that many of us are so spoiled with high tech things that we would barely survive if we turned back the time to 50 years ago. It can be dangerous to take things like that for granted. If we are stranded in a situation that we cant master because of the things that we are use to then that is so sad. When I was young which was not too long ago, I use to love going with my mom out in the woods for walks. I enjoyed seeing things around me in nature. Actually breathing fresh air. Winter did not stop us. Then my mother made hot cocoa and sandwiches and we went on walks in the snow-covered woods. Those are things that have made good memories with me. Many teenagers today don’t have that many things to look back on from their childhood. Not many people today take their kids out in their spare time. Both parents might be stressed after work ore the child might be living with only one of them and then they really don’t have any time. They have to work more than ever in order to be able to support their families. The families themselves don’t get any quality time together though as the generation before us got to have with us.
I think that the generation before us had really good values and I am happy that I grew up in the time I did. Many today though have good values too but today everybody is more stressed. How come the previous generation worked so hard but still had quality time with their families? How come we don’t have that now? How come they saw the importance of holding the families together in a totally different way then we do today? How come so many of us does not seem to care? Are we so occupied with ourselves that we can’t care for and love the people that are the closest to us? Could it be that many of us do not realize that it is our responsibility to care for the people around us? Obviously not in many cases. Some people don’t have the strength to care for anyone else but themselves. And in the end they end up being alone because they didn’t have time to care .Time, time all you hear is time. Have we lost focus on what should be important to our heart and soul? Nothing is worth anything if you do not have any love and support and the care from families and friends. So in the end you will know if you have had a rich and successful life but not depending on money but from being close to people around you.
