Flashback Thursday; Life In America - The 1980's

Flashback Thursday; 1980's
From Etsy Shop JMCVintagecards
The 1980's was my era, I'm a Gen X'r !  Born 1970 my strongest memories is of the 80's and just like most people I remember it all with rose colored glasses.  It was a generation of big hair (no one had a good hair style... NO ONE!) Self expression by printing it onto your Tee Shirt, and MTV.

I was a strange child that would watch cartoons (normal) and the news (not so normal.)  I loved being able to talk about the latest events and politics so I remember being passionate about Reagan and Ollie North.

It was the dawn of personal technology; computers, video games, VCR's, Microwaves, we could afford all of it... What is not to love?

In the 80's life in America was booming but the threat of Cold War was always looming in the background.

Gorbachev and the Berlin Wall were common knowledge and peace had a simple solution - disarmament.  Terrorism was shocking and distant, if you didn't fly international you didn't have anything to worry about.

Ah, the nostalgia! To think I lived through it and didn't appreciate it until my own daughter started wanting to wear my 80s clothes!
