THE THINGS I HAVE LEARNED OVERALL ABOUT MY FAMILY!

I have learned that my family has been doing the same things for generation to generation. we all have grew up in the same area and the same places. for generations things have changed tremendously. when my granddad was younger the way of living was cheaper and easier,as boy he was able to work without even having a job and still was able to make enough money for himself. the styles back then were very different than what that are today as well men wore a belt to keep there pants up and they wore their pants above there waist. the hair styles are not so much different because many of the hair styles you see today are what they wore back then. neighbors were able to give kids a beating if they were disrespectful or out of line. family and friends were closer back than,were now you can rarely trust anybody. I've learned from my family that we are nothing if we stand apart because to my family, family is everything and that will never change.
