What was the extremely disturbing about the last century? Imagine for a moment that you were born in the year 1900. When you were 14 years old, World War I begins and ends only when you are 18 years old, leaving 22 million dead.
A little later, a worldwide pandemic, the Spanish Flu, appears, killing 50 million people. And you are alive, 20 years old.
At 29 years old, you survive the global economic crisis that began with the crash of the New York Stock Exchange, causing inflation, unemployment and hunger.
When you are 33 years old, Nazism comes to power.
When you’re 39, World War II starts and ends when you’re 45, with 60 million dead.
When you are 52 years old, the Korean War begins.
When you’re 64, the Vietnam War starts and ends when you’re 75.
A person born in 1985, for example, thinks that their grandparents have no idea how difficult life is, not knowing that they have survived several wars and catastrophes.
Today we have been living with a great pandemic for more than a year. We are scared and tired. We lost friends and relatives, we are scared.
In the past, conditions were even worse, but yes, humanity survived under these conditions and overcame it.
Believe me, better days await us.
