Life in the 40’s

14 03 2009

In The 1940’s, we were taught a lot about patriotism, love of country, and respect for each other. It was an honor to say The Pledge of Allegiance or sing the Star Spangled Banner at school each day. We really didn’t mind that items were rationed or hard to get. In fact, if we could not buy gasoline that week, we just stayed happily at home.  We learned to appreciate what we did have rather than bemoan the fact we didn’t have something else. To be together as a family was the most important thing in our lives whether it was listening to the radio in the evenings or sitting on the porch watching the world pass us by. We were a family together and that was the important part.

Read all about this time in my book, The 1940’s
