Remember the day? Playing tag, whether it be the original version or the newer, cooler, updated game we referred to as freeze tag. If you're like me, it's been a few years since we played some of these classic outdoor games.

We all talk about our days growing up as a child. Why is it we find those days to have been more simple? May it's because back then we didn't carry the weight of the world on our shoulders as we do today as adults.

I thought about some of the games we used to play when we were kids. As I mentioned previously, tag and freeze tag were two of the most popular games along with the classic hide and seek.

You didn't need any batteries or a video screen. Just a couple of neighbor kids, out in the sunshine and fresh air, having fun, running around and getting exercise. Why don't we see kids playing outside anymore. Are video games and computers making us all robots?

It's sad to think what today's youth is missing. Oh, by the way,'re it!
