Do you think, given everything that is going on in the world, that children born these days will have a worse or better life than their parents? Why do you feel that way?
I don’t think the world’s activity has an effect on “worse or better” in a general way. It is what they are born into and know. I can’t say that my life is better than life in the 40’s because I didn’t live in that time. Are there horrible things that mark each era? Yes. But unless you pinpoint a certain group of people during a devastating time, isn’t each day a new day?
I am not saying that horrible things happen and it doesn’t matter. All of my relatives on my mother’s side went to concentration camps. Would the world have been better for me if that hadn’t happened and they were still living during that awful time? Of course, that situation was horrible and it made the world a center of ugliness and hatred, but who is to say that life was definitely worse.
I think each generation is going to have its own problems, its own agenda, its own heartache….but also its own happiness and peace.
