This is a very neat project thingy... it's definitely true though! It feels like this generation, doesn't really know how to work. I mean most everything is given to us, FAST food (so we don't have to cook), Netflicks (goodness forbid we have to actually DRIVE to a movie rental place) or like Kindles (because, you know... it's too hard to turn the pages in a book)... with all these "easy and simplified" stuff... it kinda feels like when hard times come... we won't know what to do because all of the stuff we depend on (phones, computers, etc.) won't really be available and we won't know the skills we'll need to overcome... kind of a scary thought :-/

I agree! It is a scary thought, especially to know there are hard times going on everywhere. And that history repeats itself. We won't know what to do to fix our own mistakes, like now.
