I was born in 1930 and thus had the opportunity to live during the administrations of a few American Presidents. I miss some of their behaviors in the year 2014.
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO?
A President like Harry Truman who had on his desk the motto of his theory of being President: “The Buck Stops Here!”
Mail being delivered twice a day–during the Depression.
About 36% of workers belonging to unions.
Free colleges for poor people–we had four in New York City.
Nurses in school who monthly checked the health of children– my life experience in elementary school.
A President who talked with Americans and discussed world events.
A President who weekly held press conferences and allowed reporters to pose impertinent questions.
A New York Yankee team that won the world series.
Children played without parents being present.
Children who made their own toys.
The list could go on and on.
