A young man asked his grandfather, 

"Grandpa, how did you live in the past without technology . . .

without computers

without drones

without bitcoins

without Internet connection

without TVs

without air conditioners

without cars

without mobile phones?"


Grandpa answered:

"Just as your generation lives today . . .

no prayers,

no compassion,

no respect,

no GMRC,

no real education,

poor personality,

there is no human kindness,

there is no shame,

there is no modesty,

there is no honesty.


We, the people born between the years 1930-1980, were the blessed ones. Our lives are a living proof."


¶ While playing and riding a bike, we have never worn a helmet.

¶ after school we did our homework ourselves and we always played in meadows until sunset

¶ We played with real friends, not virtual friends.

¶ If we were thirsty, we would drink frim the fountain, from the waterfalls, faucet water, not mineral water.

¶ We never worried and get sick even as we shared the same cup or plate with our friends.

¶ We never gained weight by eating bread and pasta every day.

¶ Nothing happened to our feet despite walking barefoot.

¶ We never used food supplements to stay healthy.

¶ We used to make our own toys and play with them.

¶ Our parents were not rich. They gave us love, not material gifts.

¶ We never had a cell phone, DVD, PSP, game console, Xbox, video games, PC, laptop, internet chat . . . but we had true friends.

¶ We visited our friends without being invited and shared and enjoyed the food with their family.

Parents lived nearby to take advantage of family time.

¶ We may have had black and white photos, but you can find colorful memories in these photos.

¶ We are a unique and the most understanding generation, because we are the last generation that listened to their parents.


And we are also the first ones who were forced to listen to their children.~

We are limited edition.

Take advantage of us. Learn from us. We are a treasure destined to disappear soon.

  4. Well said; "we are limited edition."
    Playing and joking with friends in real world, meet in person, indeed far more joyful. That was my world as a child.

  8. Antara sedih juga bangga bacanya. Kita merasakan sangat masa2 di mana tak ada internet tapi hidup kita happy.

    Saya berusaha keras mengajarkan anak2 untuk ga pernah lupa mengucapkan 'maaf, tolong dan terimakasih'.

    Krn banyaak anak sekarang yg ga ada etika ketika meminta tolong, ga mau mengucapkan maaf dan tidak sopan dengan orang lain. Saya tak nak anak2 saya seperti itu. Lebih baik saya membebel tiap saat mengingatkan mereka, drpd mereka nantinya tumbuh jadi orang yang tak punya karakter kuat.
