before podcasts and myspace and even blogs...

Sometimes I can't help but sit around feeling a bit lost. When did everybody grow up? Has the world always been as scary as it is now? It feels like so much is happening lately, in our country, our government, our planet. Has it always been this way, and I was just to naive or preoccupied to notice it? Or are we on the edge of something big here? Maybe I don't want to be on the edge. Maybe I miss the days when my "current events" story for Senior history class had to do with how big the world-record-breaking chocolate chip cookie was. And I had study hall afterwards and went to the library and talked on the phone after I ate dinner that my mom made.

Sometimes I miss those days.
