If I were given a choice, "when do you want to be born?"
Oh that would be such a tough decision. Each decade had its hardships- each decade had its bright spots. We look back on former times and only seem to remember either the very good times or the very bad times.
If I was born in the 30's- then I would have to live through the Second World War....but then I would be in my 20's during the 1950's, I would like to have been alive during that era (as a 20 something year old) :)
