According to today&ng.....because we could!

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

We would spend hours building go-carts out of scraps and then went top speed down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes.

After running or falling into stinging nettles a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back before it got dark.

No one was able to reach us all day and no one minded.

We did not have Playstations or X-Boxes, no video games at all. No 99 channels on TV, no videotape movies, no surround sound, no mobile phones, no personal computers, no internet chat rooms. We had friends - we went outside and found them.

We played elastics and street rounders, and sometimes that ball really hurt.

We fell out of trees, got cut and broke bones and teeth, and there were no lawsuits. They were accidents. We lear!
nt not to do the same thing again.

We had fights, punched each other hard and got black and blue we learned to get over it.

We walked to friend& into a society that will allow Government and Lawyers and interfering do-gooders to regulate our lives. We were lucky enough to grow up as real kids, which is not something that the majority of the current ones will do.

Pass this thought onto other like-minded souls and perhaps we can get back to a happier, more caring society that will actually look after and care for each other, plus show some respect for people and the place where they live.
