I grew up in CHICAGO, Illinois (16 w 47)…..During a time when everyone treated each other like Family! We went outside🏡 to play⚽🏀⚾, we got dirty and we didn’t eat fast food🍔🍟🍕….we ate sandwiches🍞, 🍬, potato chips, pickles, etc. We played Simon Says, Mother May I, Red Light/Green Light🚦, Hide and Go Seek, Jacks, Marbles, Tag, Touch football🏈, Hopscotch, Double Dutch and Checkers, and raced against each other in the street. There was no bottled water💦, we drank from the water💦 hose or the faucet. We watched 📺cartoons on Saturday mornings, walked to school🏨, the movies📽, to the corner store🏪 and rode our bikes🚴 for hours without a cell phone📱. We weren’t AFRAID OF ANYTHING not even The Police👮. If someone had a fight, that’s what it was…a fist 👊 fight. Kids didn’t have guns 🔫when I grew up. The street lights were your curfew. School was mandatory. We watched our mouths🙊 around our elders because we knew If you DISRESPECTED any grown up you’re gonna get HIT with whatever was close.
Copy & Paste with your neighborhood if you’re proud that you were taught morals and respect and will never forget where you came from!
