Soviet Union Kids Grew Up Thinking Of War Also!

Map of cold war era.

Hello,

I was drinking my morning cup of coffee, I was deep in thought about something my Wife talked about, last night before we went to bed.

She was talking about when she was a little child, that they feared war with China and America. They feared war with any county.

I thought about my childhood, We were the same!

I have talked a little about this subject before in my Blog. But this was the first time that I had heard my Wife mention about the worry of War, as a child.

This seems sad to me that, The children of the world have such a state of mind that worries about war, terrorists, and evil.

Children are suppose to grow up free from the adult pressures of life. Children should know fun, imagination and play.

We live in a world that seems to not have the children’s best interest at heart.

When I grew up, I new that Russia was Bad!! Why? Because the news media and parents told me so.
Children in other countries think America is bad! Why? The news media and parents tell them so.
In America now, The word is China. China is too big to go to war with. Too many people! Who says this? The news media and parents.

I wonder why do Adults have to express Death, War, Murder, Hate, Disasters, Crime, Terrorism’s and many other things that are not really conductive to children’s growth and development?

I will say that many Russian people try to keep their kids away from the media. The media is more controlled in Russia and I do not see that as a bad thing. The public TV in Russia reminds me of TV 30 years ago in America. Beer commercials everywhere. Yes, Budweiser and Miller advertises like crazy in Russia.(capitalism at its best)

I feel that our children should grow up in world that is safe, strong and protected. Not a world that is afraid to transverse the seas.

I know, I was worried about safety in Russia.

Truth is I am safer, much safer, than I was in the USA!!!!
