Absolutely true

Yes, we quite simply take much too much for granted. We should all appreciate much more all the blessings that G-d has put into this world and use them all properly. When we get them, say "Thank you G-d for making my life so much easier than it could have been"

The Truth and nothing but the Truth of American Lives...

This guy is totally telling the truth. The next generation is getting so spoiled by our "amazing" technologies, literally taking everything for granted. Even I WAS spoiled. No wonder Americans get so fat, sleek and so ungrateful for the things we have, that most people DON'T have in other countries. It was God who gave us riches, not us, since everything is His. The Truth and nothing but the Truth of American Lives...

I remember when it was a big deal if your neighbor had a blue princess phone and you still had the old heavy black one.

Long ag

I am a senior and I can remember when there was no TV, computers or cell phones. We really have it made today, but if you have grown up with all this, you have no conception of life before. The kids today are so very lucky to have all the modern facilites and the sad part, is they do not appreciate it, as it has always been there for them.

this is very ironic. im only 19 and im amazed when i see these 9 year old kids holding blackberry! why in the world would he need that?! and i think that we should stop every once in a while and allow yourself to be amazed at a fax and a television at the internet! i dont think you need to ecstatic every time your on a plane or the men in white coats will take you away but a little appreciation WILL make us much happier!
