Fabulous Times?

50's Car Ad
The Fabulous 1950’s

There are those who may think what was so good about the 1950’s and 60’s there was a lot of problems that’s for sure, but if you were there and lived it you would see the difference I see today, it was a time that you didn’t see the big picture because as a kid you couldn’t how could you?

That for the Adults to figure out not us kids, but it seems to me that growing up as a pre-teen in the 1950’s and as a young teen in the 1960’s there was a change you didn’t see coming! it seemed that kids grew up faster at that time beginning in 1963 with the passing of President Kennedy.

I remember it well where I was and what I was doing, It all seemed to end on that day and as the  1960’s moved on it just got that much worst! So anyone who was there has their own memories from that time period, and a different point of opinion I’m sure.

Was the 1950’s so Fabulous? and the 1960’s so groovy? You had to be there are the only words I can say. To me being kid in the 50’s was a fabulous time hands down! and though the music really was groovy, the 1960’s fell apart after 1963 in my view.

    That’s exactly what it looks like to me, although I was born much later. It seems the “End of the Innocence” happened around the mid-1960s.

      You’re right Dee, I think it was the loss of Innocence from that time forward!

    I think every generation has its pros and cons, I have fond memories growing up in the 70’s and 80’s and yet many adults don’t agree. Kids have a different perspective, not a care in the world.

    Every generation has its pros and cons, and every generation thinks they grew up in a better time than the following generations, And they think that they are wiser thatn the generations that follow, its called “juvenoia”!
