What would my great grandmother think if I could talk to her today? Walking to my car after a long shift I was reveling at today's technology. I had just worked with a machine which targeted a tumor in the brain through virtual reality. We could go directly to the tumor in the operating room minimizing the ill side effects. Wow! I drove to the closest drive-through window to pick up food in preparation for my two-hour drive home. I wondered what my great grandmother would think if I were able to communicate with her. Better yet her parents.
Technology has advanced in my lifetime to a degree its hard for me to believe it. Would my ancestors think I had lost my mind? I can order any food I desire and have it within minutes. As they handed me my drink, it dawned on me that ice alone would be a treat. I could drive one hundred and twenty miles before my ice even melts. A trip of that length in a horse and buggy may not have been so pleasant. Lol, I can listen to every variety of music or news while having my climate controlled. As I passed a car, I could see the glow of the screen in the back while children were viewing a video. I can talk to anyone in the world with a handheld device which also gives me any information my mind wants to know. Yes, they would think I had lost my mind.
Technology has advanced further since my ride home that night. Life is amazing. Looking from my childhood to today indeed leads to an attitude of gratitude. We conduct a life of luxury today I can not take for granted.
Be brave and fierce but always remain humble.
So true! And we take it all for granted!
