I'm not one of those people who romanticizes the 1950s, but there are some truths worth remembering and revisiting.
I grew up in a very different world. Play meant using imagination. It mean physical activity. Jump rope, hide and seek, tag, Stick ball (no one owned a real bat). Stoop ball, jacks. Building a "fort" or climbing a tree. Cowboys and indians.
ITS THE TRUTH and WE SURVIVED! I know because I am one of them, are you? Were you born 1930 – 1979?
