My grandfather is an eighty-year-old man. He changed, and he often says that life used to be better.
Families aren’t families the way they used to be．A lot of families have broke down．If husband and wife have problems with their marriage, they no longer stay together．And mothers used to stay at home and take care of their children，but now everyone’s working．No one has time to look after children at home．
And the cars! No one walks any more：everyone drives．We used to walk five miles to school every day，even in winter．But now they don’t．And in schoo1．the children don’t have to think any more．In math class，for example，we used to add，subtract, multiply and divide in our heads．Kids don’t use their heads any more；instead，they use calculators(计算器)．
Most families have computers now．In the past we didn’t have computers．We didn’t even have lights．My mother used to spend all day cooking in the kitchen．But now nobody eats home．cooked food any more．
And people don’t talk to each other any more．They are too busy to talk，too busy to eat，too, busy to think……
Life used to be simple, but it isn’t any more．
