You weren't born at the wrong time. Think of how much you missed out on:

Senator Joe McCarthy's Red Scare, Communist hunts. How many lives were ruined back then.

How about the recession of 1958?

The scare of Ike's heart attack.

Sputnik and the fear it caused.

The above-ground nuclear testing that was still going on.

So many were drilled into the duck and cover procedure, it's no wonder so many younger ones felt they had no future to look farward to.

The deaths of George Reeves, Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper and Buddy Holly.

If we look at the world of the 1950's objectively, we'll see they were not all sunshine and roses.

The 1960's, 1970's, 1980's and 1990's weren't that great either. The world can be a gloomy place, if we let it.

It is nice to look back with fondness. It helps take the horror off the present.
