We Are Mostly Still The Same

We look at the kids today and wonder what the world will come to.

People said that about my generation, the one before, the ones after.

I read ancient documents. The young people 4,000 years ago? The same.

The same hopes, fears, adolescent stupidity.

I saw this cartoon the other day:


Still, things are much better today than 100 years ago. Or farther back. We live more comfortably throughout most of the world. We have better health. Less violence (despite headlines meant to stir up emotions and readership). Peace and justice keep winning a little at a time.

It’s Advent time for Christians. A season of anticipation of the coming of the Prince of Peace. We’re the same, yet better.
