The different old days


So take heart, millennials, the lesson is clear: The good old days never were that good. We go through tough times and good times, it’s the ebb and flow of life. Be strong, resilient and optimistic. You will get through this period in American history and experience great times of freedom and prosperity. Enjoy life, stay grounded in the moment and be students of history. And don’t say “the good old days!”
