Limited endangered species - historical truth

We, the people born between 1950-1970 in  African countries are the bless ed ones...
We are the awesome people... Our life is a living proof.

While playing and riding rented bicycle, we never bothered to wear helmets. We played marbles, tabala, dodging, skipping ropes, Etc.

After school time we played until dusk but never watched the world (TV) by locking up ourselves in a room.

We played only with our real friends, not with friends.

If we ever felt thirsty, we drank tap water or water from the stream . bottled water didn't exist.

We never got ill even after sharing the same juice or drink with four friends.

We  didn't put on weight even after eating plate full of sweets, garri, yam, plantains. On special days (Xmas. New Year) we had rice and chicken.

Nothing happened to our feet even after roaming and kicking ball made of rags  or rubber bare footed

We never used any health supplements to keep ourselves healthy.

We used to create our own toys, bamboos, carton and milk tins.

Our parents were not rich, and they never chased after money. They just searched for and gave only love.. not any worldly possession.

We never had mobile phones, DVDs, Play stations, X-Boxes, video games, personal computers, internet, instagrams, Facebook, but we had many good friends.

We used to visit our friend's home unannounced and enjoyed food with them. We never had to call them and ask for their parents permission to visit their home.

Loving people were near to us so our hearts and souls were happy. Hence we never required any insurance policy.

We might have been in Black and White photos but you find colourful memories in them

The Ultimate is that we are a unique and the most understanding generation, because we are the last generation that listened to their parents and also the first that have to listen to their children.

We are the last set of people to treck kilometers bare footed to school, and yet carry our children to school in cars or by drivers.

The last generation to enjoy free public school education but the first to pay to train children In  private schools.

We had less homework in our days so we could help our parents in home duties but have to assist our kids in their homework who cannot assist parents or maids in home duties.

We are not special, but a LIMITED EDITION and  ENDANGERED SPECIES. I am proud I belong to this noble generation.
