In your opinion what are the most important traits of our ancestors that we lack today?

I would say the value of a hard day's work.

Self sufficiency seems to be evaporating day by day.

Being swift, forceful, stong and mysterious.

Work ethics.

I think many folks will admit,
When the tale of our era is writ,
What we lacked really bad,
That our ancestors had,
Was tenacity, courage and grit.
 
★ not everyone, of course, just too many.

@dru18 The world is a heck of a lot more hectic today.

Dru, think of what the generation born around 1910 had to face. Two world wars, tens of millions of untimely, cruel deaths, economic depression and joblessness, and then the Cold War. And they overcame it all.
 
They haven't been called the Greatest Generation for nothing.

@Thinkerbell Dru, think of what the generation born around 1910 had to face. Two world wars, tens of millions of untimely, cruel...

Oh I agree completely with that. They knew what hard work and self sacrifice was all about.
I was thinking more along the lines of pace and technology, which is being created so fast that people are having a hard time catching up.
