Some people may hold the opinion that elderly people spend their lives easily. However, in my opinion, I agree with the point of view that these days we have less problems than our grandmother and grandfather. My arguments for this stance are listed as follows.

First of all, about 50 years ago, people are not free due to the terrible warfare. To give an example, there are many difficulties during the world war 2. They could not go to school, eat enough foods and got to be what they wanted. There are a lot of troubles to endure. However, now I can take favorite classes with no problems, have favorite food like cakes and snacks and challenge the dream to be a tennis player. These are usual for us but it would be never occurred to anyone who lived 50 years ago to do such. This example shows that my states that it is more convenient for the young today to make a living is preferable.

In addition, nowadays we can get everything thanks to developed transportation systems by using airplanes, boats, cars and trains. For instance, we are able to read foreign novels. In the town, there are many shops that have goods from abroad and they are almost as same price as that are made in japan. My grandmother Tomoe told me that she would like to read books titled ‘Over the rainbow’ which were popular in US but it was impossible to get it. That was because in that era exported things are so expensive that many people could not buy them. Furthermore, under the war, to tach foreign products is strictly prohibited even if you were kids. As this example illustrates, I strongly believe that it is better to live now.

Furthermore, the population in our country is decreasing so we have less competitors. Specifically, it is not hard for us to get job because of the population problem. In Japan, the number of kids in 2017 is half as many as in 1950s. While, there are more farms now. Then, almost all of companies have had trouble of the shortage of young workers. That is why it is less difficult for us to work than the old. This example also indicates that my opinion is superior to the opposite.

In conclusion, I think that life today is more convenient than what it was used to be. These days, our lives are freer and full of things.
