Because something that happened frequently in recent years such as economic crisis and pollution is influencing our daily life. However, I argue that life is easier and more comfortable than it was when my grandparents were children.

However, the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the developing of world market bring the relative peace. As a result, People can buy life necessities at a stable prize. They also do not worry about the nuclear war. Life become more comfortable.
With so many advantages, it is obvious that life is easier and more comfortable than before. If my grandparents are still alive, maybe they will also feel relaxing.
