The people we aspired to be decades ago were much different than the celebrities young people looked up to today. The values of our past have nearly vanished, but I’m hoping that if everyone sees this, they might think differently about what "cool" was yesterday and what is considered "cool" today. . . really isn’t.

Share and remind everyone what "cool" used to be like!
