I was a child in the 50's. That's me at 3 years old in our yard.

I was just looking through a collection of old 8mm film my parents took back in the fifties.

Thinking about getting it converted to digital media.

May share a bit if I do.

Yeah I hear you ... I do believe that those of us who care about our fellow earthlings are aware of what happened during these troubled times.

Dwelling on this will not serve any useful purpose. What we need to do now is to make sure that this does not happen again.

Not to dwell on them, but to never forget what we are capable of doing to each other.

I suggest that whether you memories of the fifties are good or bad may depend on which end of the fire hose you were on.
