The Good Ole Days
After a lot of thought, I may have figured out what’s wrong with the world these days. Being in my 50s, I’m old enough to remember a time when people “got along” for the most part. No one used to hate anyone else for their political views. Most folks lived by the rule that you were supposed to treat people the way you, yourself, wished to be treated. The world was a much bigger place, or so it seemed. People treated others with respect. Many folks my age and older find themselves looking back at the “good old days” and wonder where it all went wrong. It’s easy to blame it on “the new people in town” or even your friends and neighbors that don’t share our political views.
