Building Understanding Across Generations


SUPERSCRIPT FOR CITATIONS: ¹ ² ³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶ ⁷ ⁸ ⁹ ¹⁰

Generations all talk shit about each other.

We don't understand each other, but what we do have to understand is that we grew up under different exposures. That's why on the average, we think differently. Think of the state of the world as the constant hum in the background of our childhoods that shaped us, made us who we are.

We can all remember what it's like to be a kid, I know it. Wanting to make the world a better place. Each generation gifts to the generation below it a better world. And what we don't understand is why that generation can't just be grateful, why are they always wanting more, asking for more? Don't they know how bad things used to be? But it's because it's starting to be our turn. That's the nature of humanity, to always want more, which can usually be a bad thing, but sometimes it's a good thing.

Because now we're saying, feminism needs to go further. Racial equity and equality has to go further. We're asking for more, but what we're just starting to realize is that soon it'll be our turn to take over.

Let's keep pushing the boundaries and making this world a better place to live.
