No apologies necessary GvD, if we learned nothing else over the past 5 years, we learned words matter. I don’t disagree with much you have written. Clearly the greatest generation were wholly different from boomers. The question ultimately becomes, do those differences mean anything when it comes to caring about what is happening around and to them? Rather than attempting to answer the question, it seems to me, each of us need look within. This past year has been challenging to almost everyone. Self-isolating, withdrawing from humanity and not socializing has created an opportunity in my humble opinion. With nothing but time on our hands, i have found myself looking within. I suspect many others have been as reflective as i have. As i worked on Sun City’s history it became abundantly clear to me all of the advances we have made has come at a price. While so many love the idea of having an iPhone and all it is able to do in hand, has it made us better or worse? Has been being able to stay connected to where we moved from place to place a plus or a minus? Are we somehow better off because we have 400 channels available or were the 6 or 12 from the 60’s enough? Silly questions perhaps, but none the less, when asked it at least forces us to think. Sadly, we do too little of that these days. Talking heads on TV, radio and all of the other mediums shape our opinions. Social media consumes us in ways that are often counter-productive. The very idea we are slaves to technology is depressing. I’ve written often of Morris Massey. I’ll spare you the long version of his teachings, but the short version is our behavior is shaped in our youth and by pressures around us. The only time we really change is when we (society) are faced with a significant emotional event (SEE). I would quickly follow up, the pandemic has been exactly that. All of which suggests we could potentially use the crisis as a turning point in our lives and in our directions. Alas, i am getting ahead of myself. The tomorrow segment will go there. For today, i would hope people start to look within. Do you like where you/we are? As a society, are we in a good place or a bad place? Is there reason to think we can all do better? I can’t answer those questions for you, but for me, i dislike where we are and what we have become.
