I’ll bet you remember what your Mom told you. Mine used to say “you have it so much easier than we did”.
By that she meant she really did walk to school, had chores on the farm, washed clothes by hand and no TV or radio.
We are telling our children how sorry we are that we failed to see the barbarians at the gate - BECAUSE THEY WERE INSIDE THE DAMN GATES!!!!!!
Absolutely. The old...I have seen the enemy..and the enemy is us. How did we get here from there?
