Memory Full: Boomers and the Art of Never Going Away -- Sightings (David Gottlieb)
I am part of the Baby Boomer Generation, though I was born near the tail end. It appears that my generation isn't aging very gracefully. In fact, we do all we can to resist the aging process, and apparently, we're seeking to find ways that will preserve our presence long after we're gone. This is causing generational angst. I don't have any solutions to this reality, other than to remind members of my generation that many of the same critiques we offer to the younger generations were given to us. So, perhaps we can be a bit more gracious in our interactions. Personally, I don't have plans of preserving my bodily essence for posterity. I entrust my future beyond the grave to God's hands. In any case, this essay by David Gottlieb, who is also part of the Boomer generation explores our penchant for self-preservation and its impact on our descendants. With that, I invite you to read!!
