I was born in the 70s and am disappointed, in how we let the next and younger generations down. We have allowed them to think that it is normal to be
ignorant and dumb down. Not saying all of their generation is that way, but an overly uncomfortable amount.
Perhaps it will be blamed as a passing fad or phase. But I have seen it from beginning, and the increase in people who are almost proud to be stupid,
is astonishing. Plain ignorance is not cool, and it seems some think it is.
What is going to happen is those of us, who remember the old days, and were told about the hard times, will know better. Those who don't listen and
think they know it all, yet say " I don't know.." when you ask then a question, are lost...zombies in a world of ravenous vultures, so to say.
People of today and tomorrow, will never be old school, no matter how much they pose and pretend, they will never be of that generation or ours.
They can only try to pay attention and learn, as few I've seen have.
Which gives me the hope that the next generation may have a chance. That we left a positive lesson to be passed on, as those before us have.
We are those torch bearers who can illuminate the minds of those whom it speaks.
Because it is the new generation, that will be here when we are gone. Will we leave any thing for them to pass on...
