Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
Life today is easier and more comfortable than it was when your grandparents were children.
I agree that life today is easier and more comfortable than it was when my grandparents were children. There are two reasons
that I think so. that can support my argument.
First, scientists and
inventers inventors have invented a lot of new things [that benefit our lives] in these recent decades. It doesn’t mean that all the new inventions can improve the quality of our life. There must be both helpful of unhelpful things in those inventions. For those unhelpful inventions, we can ignore them, and pretend that they don’t exist. This way doesn’t change our lives at all. However, for those inventions that are helpful to us, we can start using them to make are live easier and more comfortable. For example, someone invented the mobile phones, which make people can connect with each others easily. People believe that mobile phone is an useful and helpful invention, so it became popular, and make more and more people’s lives easier and more comfortable.(這些才是這段重點，放到前面先講)
Second, [Taiwan is more peaceful than it used to be.]my grandparents were born in Taiwan in the 1950s, when the KMT and the CCP were having the Chinese Civil War. A few years later, the KMT lost and retreated to Taiwan. Before they are 40, they lived under the martial law, which
is the martial law that lasted for the longest time in the world. How could it be possible to live a wonderful and comfortable childhood during that period of time? Today, there is no more war between Taiwan and China, and Taiwan become a country of democracy and freedom. The life in Taiwan now is definitely easier than before.(後面才是重點，) Because of For the two reasons above, people nowadays can not only enjoy the new technology and inventions but also have a safe and joyful childhood. So, I believe that life today is easier and more comfortable than it was when my grandparents were children.
