Excerpt 07 : Older & Younger People


We are all experiencing more or less the same lifetime now.
 
What is it the slightly older people want from the slightly younger people? They want credit for having survived so long, and often imaginatively, under difficult conditions. Slightly younger people are intolerably stingy about giving them credit for that.
 
What is it the slightly younger people want from the slightly older people? More than anything, I think, they want acknowledgement, and without further ado, that they are without question women and men now. Slightly older people are intolerably stingy about making any such acknowledgement.

Everything I wish I wrote to represent my thoughts on human's relationship between older and younger people. Thanks Kurt Vonnegut.
