ran into this on another site (heaven forbid) and was so impressed that I had to share with my DDDian friends....

1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!

First, we survived being born to mothers 
Who smoked and/or drank while they were 
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, 
Tuna from a can and didn't get tested for diabetes.
Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies
in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-base paints.
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, 
Locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode 
Our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our heads.
As infants & children, 
We would ride in cars with no car seats, 
No booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags,
bald tires and sometimes no brakes.
Riding in the back of a pick-up truck on a warm day 
Was always a special treat. 
We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle. 

We shared one soft drink with four friends, 
From one bottle and no one actually died from this. 

We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon..
We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar.
And, we weren't overweight. Why?
Because we were always outside playing...that's why! 

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, 
As long as we were back when the streetlights came on. 
No one was able to reach us all day. And, we were O.K. 

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps 
And then ride them down the hill, only to find out 
We forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes 
A few times, we learned to solve the problem. 

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's and X-boxes. 
There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, 
No video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, 
No cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms.
And we went outside and found them! 

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth 
And there were no lawsuits from these accidents. 

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, 
And the worms did not live in us

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, 
Made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, 
Although we were told it would happen, 
We did not put out very many eyes. 

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and
Knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just
Walked in and talked to them. 

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. 
Those who didn't had to learn to deal 
With disappointment. 
Imagine that!! 

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law 
Was unheard of. 
They actually sided with the law! 

These generations have produced some of the best 
Risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever. 

The past 50 years 
Have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. 
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, 
And we learned how to deal with it all. 

If YOU are one of them, 
You had the luck to grow up as kids, before the 
Lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives 
for our own good.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house 
With scissors, doesn't it? 

The quote of the month is by Jay Leno: 
"With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, 
Mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms 
Tearing up the country from one end to another, 
And with the threat of swine flu 
and terrorist attacks. 
Are we sure this is a good time 
to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?' 

For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us…
you can ignore this post.
God determines who walks into your life...
it's up to you to decide who you let walk away,
who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go. 

When there is nothing left but God,
that is when you find out that God is all you need.
Take 60 seconds and say a prayer for the your family and friends . . .
Father, You are truly the God of the Universe.
Bless my friends and family in whatever it is that
You know they may need this day! 
And may their life be full of your peace, prosperity, and power.
Destroy my enemies by making them my friend
through changing my heart and theirs.
As he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with you, grant them that privilege to know that you are the only Savior and Lord who seeks and loves them. 
In the name of our Lord and Savior, Amen.
