“Wow! The next generation is gonna ruin this world that we worked so hard to build for them!”
–Says: people born in the 60’s
. . .
The following letter is for people born in the 60s.
Dear elder & wiser human,
Please don’t be offended by this; just read through to the end; and try to understand our point of view for once, please & thank you.
I don’t understand why you say that we are going to ruin the world because no one obviously wants to ruin the world; maybe we were just not told how we should actually treat the world.
I mean, let’s be honest, people have told us to respect the world, but those same people are always complaining about how we are gonna ruin it anyways.
So, why are you wasting your time telling us to take care of your world, but then, also complaining about the state of our world?
We just don’t get it! If you’re that worried, take initiative & teach the next generations things you learned to take care of the world, and then you won’t have to complain anymore because you taught the next generation, so you will be more confident in the future of the world with a generations that you taught.
Some of you will say: “but they don’t listen anyways, they just do their own thing.”
To you, I answer: “maybe if you stopped complaining about us, to us, we would listen to you better and actually start taking your advice. But, as long as you keep complaining about us ruining your world, we won’t take you seriously because we don’t think you really care.”
Because, to us, if you cared, you would stop complaining & give us real tips and tricks on how to treat the world because most of us are clueless (some of us realize that the future is important because we were raised with good advice, but others didn’t have older and wiser people in their lives to take advice from), so we need you to teach us things from your past that will actually help us in the future of our world!
In conclusion, please stop complaining about the next generations (us) and start doing something to better the future of our world!
Because it is OUR world and I promise you that the next generation wants to respect it as much as you, we just (sometimes) don’t know how because we are newer to this world and need to learn from our elder and more experienced humans!
The next generation
that cares about the future of our world
just as much as you!
P.S. Thank you for what you’ve done so far in our world. Please teach us things from your past to help us continue to keep the world spinning!
Thanks for reading!
