Usher Writing


Day 10

As society progresses, advice from grandparents to children is not as useful as it was in the past.

Some argue that advice from grandparents to children is not as useful as it was in the past. Others assert that their advice is as valid as it was in the past. If asked, both groups would present compelling assertions to corroborate their stances. My grandfather passed away when I was young. When he was alive, he told me many interesting and horrible war stories based on his personal experience. He gave me two pieces of advice: first, do not repeat the war again; second, do not throw away your toys. These suggestions are still very much valid today, which introduces my contention that advice from grandparents to children is as useful as it was in the past.

His first advice was not to repeat the war. He was 5 years old when the war was over. His town was completely destroyed by enemy airplanes that dropped bombs and killed tens of thousands of people. His uncle, aunt, two sisters were among the victims of the war. He wished that this had been just a dream, but it was unfortunately very much real. His wish today is never ever repeat the same mistake of having another war. This is a very valid advice that is applicable to any generations now and in the future. This example demonstrates that the tragedy of war shall not be repeated.

His second advice was not to throw away things you have until you are sure that they are not repairable. After the war, he walked around the devastated town every day hoping to find something. It was very tough time for him; he just survived one day at a time. He found a toy which was badly damaged, but he managed to repair it and played with it for the next ten years. So, whenever he sees someone throw away an old toy, he feels that it can be repaired. This example illustrates that we should preserve our limited natural resources.

It is true that some suggestions from grandparents may not be totally applicable to the present. For example, they often tell us to follow the instructions of senior people, especially your parents under any circumstances. This advice may not be true entirely today, but we should still respect those seniors who have more experience. My grandfather provided me with two pieces of advice: first, do not repeat the war again; second, do not throw away your belongings. These suggestions are still very much valid today, which leads to my conclusion that advice from grandparents to children is as useful as it was in the past. (431 words)
