Kids have it so easy today.
Movies streamed instantly.
Millions of songs on Spotify.
Gaming with friends virtually.
But so did we…
We had AOL when our parents had no computers at all.
We had ESPN, MTV, and dozens of channels when our parents had 3.
We could skip songs with our Walkman when our parents had vinyl records.
Every generation thinks they have it harder than the next one.
They feel they struggled mightily and everyone younger is soft and weak.
But we are all the same. We go through hardship and tragedy. We experience pain and sorrow.
We all suffer.
It doesn’t matter what technological advancements happen at what period of time.
We all have our own unique challenges that push us to the edge and make us question our beliefs.
It’s in those moments that we can confidently believe we can get through this.
We know it’s possible to persevere and come out the other end stronger.
That we can survive and advance.
Because the ones that came before us did.
