Intergenerational Issues

“If we have slipped behind, it is because my generation failed. Mea culpa, maxima mea culpa! We did not transcend ourselves.”

– F. Sionil Jose. Valedictory  December 9, 2007. From: Gleanings From a Life in Literature. UST Press, 2011. pp. 87.

 

There is an old lady in there somewhere. Can you see her? (Photo was from  http://www.moillusions.com/2008/12/just-some-few-old-hags.html)

I have been reading Ms. Consuelo C. Razon’s column from the Philippine Daily Inquirer http://lifestyle.inquirer.net/112447/its-our-childrens-turn.

The issues she brought up tickled me, to say the least.

Old people can be such drama queens (and kings) sometimes. But since we will eventually grow up to be like them — in fact we will Be Them in the near/far future — what they say can be worth noting.
