Food for thought
I understand the appeal of romanticizing the past. Many elders – and some of my peers – believe the world was “better when…”
I’ve always assumed they mean the world was “better” before responsibilities, sicknesses, foils and follies. Sometimes I hear some of them say the world was better before “those” people or “those” politicians.
I think what my elders – and peers – are really saying is the world was better when they still dreamed.
