If I Went Back To School
Not only was I older but, everything had changed.
1. You don’t write cursive.
2. You don’t use books, you have electronic tablets
3. In History Class I realized I had become a part of History
4. The girls were too young.
As I would walk the halls the kids would call me old man.
I had been through presidents all the way back to Dwight D. Eisenhower. I had seen wars and events that they could only read about.
I had been through the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Bobby Kennedy.
I watched the news when Grissom, Chaffey, and White were killed in that awful fire when the rocket they were strapped in went up in flames
I had seen first-hand mankind take his first step on the moon.
I experienced the changes through close to 6 decades. The music, the styles, the speech.
We went from hippies to millennial.
I have seen things that these kids will never get to experience. I would be in a whole different world.
