Misplaced in the Past from the Future

hillbilliesEvery new generation in each new century thinks they have it much better than their ancestors in the past. We have the modern conveniences. We have medicine, indoor plumbing, opposable thumbs… When we look back we see ourselves as better off. Isn’t it funny that each generation thinks the same and yet each generation takes their turn at becoming the past. A generation to come will look at us and think how we must have struggled without all the modern conveniences. How backwards our health care was, how did we live without all the medicines and cures they have.

Put yourself in the past and look forward to our future. How do things look? What would you most wish to bring back with you into the past and how would that change the future (to have something modern brought into the past)?
