    Imagine being born in 1900.

    When you are 14 years old

    World War I begins

    and ends when you are 18,

    with 22 million dead.

    Shortly after the world pandemic,

    flu called ′′ Spanish ",

    killing 50 million people.

    You go out alive and free,

    and you are 20 years old.

    Then at the age of 29 you survive
    the global economic crisis that started
    with the collapse of the New York Stock Exchange
    causing inflation, unemployment and hunger.

    Nazis come to power at 33.

    You are 39 when world war 2. begins

    and it ends when you are 45
    during the Holocaust (Shoah), 6 million Jews die.

    There will be a total of more than 60 million dead.

    When your 52th Korean war begins.

    When you are 64, the Vietnam war begins
    and ends when you are 75.

    A baby born in 1985 believes his grandparents
    have no idea how hard life is,

    and survived several wars and disasters.

    A boy born in 1995 and 25 today believes
    that the end of the world
    when his Amazon package
    takes more than three days to arrive
    or if he doesn't exceed 15 likes
    for his posted photo on Facebook or Instagram...

    In 2020., many of us live in comfort,
    have access to various sources of entertainment
    at home and often have more than needed.

    But people complain about everything.

    They have electricity, phone, food, hot water
    and a roof over their heads.

    None of this existed.

    But humanity survived much more serious circumstances
    and never lost the joy of
    life.

    Maybe it's time to be less selfish, stop whining and crying 1f44d.
