The end of thinking
There was a time when we used our fingers and made lines on paper to add
When our math wasn’t too hard for our parents to help
Dinner was prepared on a stove and cooked with fire
When we sounded out words then used a dictionary to look it up to see if we were right
When we counted by 5’s to tell the time….
When essays were hand written
When we asked our grand parents about history……
When you were not allowed to bring a gun anywhere near where the president was….
Water was free
When we valued human life above animals…
When people thought BEFORE they spoke
When freedom of speech was attached to common sense
When we used our voices to communicate with one another…
When friends were people we met, knew and physically spent time with….
When we were man or woman enough too look someone in the eye when breaking up with them…
When first base was touching of hands
And at the end of a date you hope for a kiss
When our intimate moments we shared with each other and not the world via internet….
When we said I Love You and meant it and not ily…
When people looked you in the eye instead of down at computers, cell phones, and blackberries…
When photos were proudly displayed on the walls of homes, wallets and in photo albums….
When parents were not ashamed to listen to music in front of their children…a time when parents were adults.
When kids asked for change not cards
When children were afraid of getting in trouble by their parents, not the other way around
When mothers and daughters didn’t borrow each others clothes
When a horror movie scared you and not turned you on…
When celebrities were people had a talent
When we learned skills from tag and dodge ball and were not considered bullies…
When teachers hug and children had respect….
When exercise was not done via video game
And children actually went out side to play
Every home had a phone
And our biggest fear about flying was crashing…
And in GOD we trusted
How are you spending the time you have been given
Spend it wisely
Slowly but surely, fading….it is the end of time
