Do you remember when your home didn’t have electricity or running water? When your bathroom was an outhouse and toilet paper was an old Sears catalog?

World War II started. Blimps were patrolling the West Coast. Gas, coffee, sugar, shoes and tires were rationed. A United States president was elected to his fourth term in office. We didn’t have mass shootings or school shootings, and we survived. World War II ended.
