Average Life Expectancy

Today I was just thinking about the average life expectancy of humans in general. Obviously as technology and health care have improved, average life expectancy has been increased.

Here in Spain it is 84 years old and back home in the US it is 79 years old. Less than Spain but still pretty good.

For most of human history, the average life span was just 30 or 40 years. That would mean statistically I would die next year and my parents would have died 29 years ago.

I am very lucky that they are still alive (as is my grandmother who is 88!). I have no idea how long any of us will live but, I am thankful for each and every day that I am given.

If I could go back in time and visit the past I would do it. However, I would not want to live permanently without the comforts of modern life and modern medicine. 

That is all for now, Tyler
