Other thread got me thinking.  What are some of the things that you have been through that you hope your kids never have to experience?

Was just kind of discussing this last night.....definitely not looking forward to the day that my daughter experiences real heartbreak.

 

 

 

 

 

The guy who does it to her shouldn't be looking forward to that day either.

I don't have kids, but if I did, I can see myself trying to describe to my kids all the freedoms, societal norms and the enjoyment of life that were so much more prevalent then than they are now.

 

Imagine, we're continually regressing by removing the rights and privileges of specific population groups (women, minorities, senior citizens, etc.), government spying on your and your neighbors, union busting, sending your job overseas... in short, I'm glad I don't have the kids that will have to try to grow up and live as part of such a restricted, over-governed, zero-tolerance, unaccepting society.

I was thinking of seeing the twin towers come down.  Yes I know that wouldn't happen again, but I hope that my kids (maybe one day) don't have to experience something like that.

 

Also a flood like I went through with hurricane Floyd.

But what they do have to experience is growing up in the post-9/11 world of the Patriot Act, phone tapping, internet spying, airport searches, law enforcement authority unlike anything us older folks grew up with, protracted wars overseas for no apparent reason...
