Life today is easier and more comfortable than it was when your grandparents were children.
Personally, I believe that life today is much easier than in my grandparent's childhood. I feel this way for two reasons, which I will explore in the following essay.
To begin with, now we have such useful thing as the internet. My grandparents could not even imagine such technology. With the help of the internet, we can literally do everything that we want: spending time on the internet for your enjoyment, find information without going to the library, and sending messages in seconds. In the past, to receive the message, you could spend weeks or even months. For example, I have watched a lot of documentary movies about that time. To find information, people required: stay in the queue, find a specific book about your question, spend hours in an attempt to find an answer. I sure that it was very hard, and the internet could change their lives dramatically.
Also, smartphones are the things that everyone has. When you left your phone at home, you feel destroyed. Imagine people in the past that whole life living without it. For example, people should take a large camera to take some photos in the past, but only wealthy persons could afford such a camera. To send a message to relatives, people must pay for the mail delivery and wait for an answer for a month. Phones combine all these functions in one small device that could be taken anywhere. For instance, my grandma told me a story about her attempt to send a message to her family in another country. She paid 20 times more expensive to send a mail with three sentences. She concluded the story by saying how the phone would be helpful at that time.
In conclusion, I strongly feel that life nowadays much easier. This is because people in the past does not have internet and phones.
