I started my school years in the mid-fifties, while living in England, returning to the USA in the late fifties, so my young age & distance from my homeland kept me from enjoying personal memories of most things shared on this; however, I have enjoyed the ones that sparked a memory for me & seeing anew what the 1950s offered so many.
Our Dad did serve in the Korean Conflict, as he had earlier in WWII & would later in the Vietnam War. What utter waste of human life & resources that could have been put to better use!
In the late 1960s, I learned to drive in the same T-bird model that is briefly pictured in the video --- so that, as well as a few other depictions, brought memories for this gal.
I am surprised that Barbie wasn't part of this video. I never had a Barbie (poor deprived kid that I was
), but I do remember friends having them in the late 1950s.
Thankfully, I was a military dependent, living on military installations, with parents who taught us better than to believe that one race was superior to others, so that part of the evil thinking going on with some, in that period of our country's history, did not touch my life.
I am forever thankful to You, my Abba Father, for not allowing my young life to be tainted with such a sad & destructive belief system. Amen!
To those of you who have stopped by to check this blog out, I say a sincere,
& God bless you with only enriching memories!
“Lost In The Fifties” is a look back at life in the 1950s, that was such a memorable decade for those that lived it. Many people have fond memories of the cars, music, and icons of the Fifties, but the decade was also marked by not so fond memories like The Korean War, racism and McCarthyism.
