BET­TER OFF THAN EVER BE­FORE

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION - MRS ROSE WHITE­HEAD Wood­side Close Chal­font St Peter

IT sad­dens me when I hear peo­ple re­fer to the past as ‘the good old days’.

I be­lieve we are bet­ter off than our fore­bears.

Our life ex­pectancy is much longer and medicine has greatly ad­vanced.

We are mostly housed, fed and ed­u­cated and al­though our so­ci­ety is not per­fect, we try to look af­ter the weak and needy.

We are more tol­er­ant and un­der­stand­ing of dif­fer­ences and most of us are car­ing and re- spon­si­ble enough to try to build a bet­ter world for this gen­er­a­tion and the next.
