I wonder how these times will affect our generation. Will we still have the original 20lb Ipods stuffed in the bottom of our closets when we’re in our 70’s? I tend to have high aspirations for our generation. We seem to be more practical than the bipolar baby boomers that went from peace, love and hippie communes to conservative devils like Karl Rove. We don’t do excess nearly as well as they did back in the 80’s when greed was still hip and coke wasn’t completely cut to shit. We’re well educated. We have information access on levels never thought imaginable even 30 years ago. More than that we talk to each other. It’s hard to hate someone you know. It’s hard to destroy a country when you have friends that live there. In the couple months I’ve been blogging here I’ve read the inner thoughts and desires of people from all parts of the world and you know what? I’d like to see them succeed.
I don’t see the world being such a scary place twenty years from now. A big reason for that will be us. Don’t despair no matter how tough things seem now. We’re the sober generation. Ten years from now when we look back at what we’ve accomplished will be able to hold our heads high and toast to a better world.
I truly believe this with all of my heart.
