Grateful for the past

When I think of those raised in suburbia - in private houses - needing car rides to
ballet, music lessons, movies, friends houses I feel they missed a lot. Here we
were in our three room, walkup apartments - parents living paycheck to paycheck-
and yet: We had instant friends - courts or schoolyards - great transportation-
older ladies sitting outside keeping an eye out - walk to shopping - school-
three movie theaters for me but at least one for most...and on and on...we were
the lucky ones - that's if your home life was good/not everyone fared as well
