Through the Years


Sun, Dec 3rd, 2000

Monday, December 4, 2000

Times have gradually changed throughout the years. Even though I have only been living for 17 years, I have seen a lot of changes. I can’t even imagine how much has changed for my parents, not to mention my grandparents.

I have heard many great stories from my grandparents. They have told me things that they used to do when they were young. They used to play the traditional games like hide and seek, kick the can, baseball, basketball, and football to mention a few. They usually played many outside games, and some card games. They had to walk to school every day, because they didn’t have busses back then. They could buy a sack of candy for $.05 or $.10. They knew what it was like to live through tough times like the depression and wars.

My parents have also shared with me some of the stories of their youth. They told me how they played many of the traditional games along with cards and a few board games. They had a larger variety of games to select from than my grandparents did. My parents did have a bus to ride, and could drive the family car once in a while when they got their license. They usually didn’t get a car (that they bought themselves) of their own until after graduation. They always talk about the Bazooka Joe bubble gum that they could get 1 or 2 for a penny. They, too, have lived through wars along with the death of President Kennedy.

Now I can write about the present time, and what I have experienced. Not only do we have the traditional games to play, but we also have many board games along with Nintendo, Playstation, and numerous other things to do on the computer. Nowadays it is hard to get children to play the traditional outside games with all of the advances in technology. Along with busses, we have open enrollment, where the busses will travel out of their districts just to pick up a couple of kids. Once kids get their licenses, they usually get a car to drive because of all of the different activities that they are involved in. We are lucky if we can buy a pack of gum or a candy bar for a dollar nowadays. The most controversial thing in history that we have lived through is this last presidential election.

I could keep going on and on with the things that every generation has experienced and the changes that they have gone through, but I would not have enough time or room to write it all down. I know that I have left many spaces in between, but I have done this on purpose. .....
