Young people today are so much better than they used to be.
Ok; let me clarify, or, perhaps, say what I really mean. I am more optimistic about young people today than about when I was the age they are now.
I have awesome and encouraging conversations with people half my age. They are thoughtful, intelligent, and generous. They even seem interesting in what I have to say.
They treat me with respect.
Which is more than I can say for myself when I was the age they are now. At least, that’s how I remember things.
Maybe I should have a more gracious memory of years past.
