I've been in Paris for the last few days and have been amazed at how the French are so different with children and elders than we are in the states. It's so hard to put into words, but it's different. I know for a fact that I don't want to be old living in Los Angeles. It's so sad, but you don't really see old people in LA. It's as if they have them under lock and key somewhere and if they are seen it would tarnish the reputation of LA. So very sad. Children.. well what I've witnessed in Paris are kids running, playing and laughing OUTSIDE! Unheard of in the states or at least where I've been. Kids are so jaded these days and sit in front of the TV. Another thing.. so very sad.
