I had an epiphany recently. After viewing workers on cell phones, talking and texting, I thought our generation was better than that but then, again, most generations think that the generation that followed was less than they were. The greatest generation was clearly those who preceded the Baby Boomers of which I am one. Now us baby boomers think that this new generation with their tattoos, body piercings is crazy. We may have had long hair (although I never did), full beards (which I had) but nothing a haircut and a shave wouldn’t change to be more compliant and acceptable to the previous generation.
So then, what was the epiphany? That each generation is no better or worse than the previous one, just different. And as much as we think each generation after us is different, we are the same… with each generation having their own music, their own lifestyle, quirks, and their own definition of right or wrong behavior.
With our best wishes for a Happy, Healthy, and Peaceful Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Please place your orders early… there are all sorts of shortages in the marketplace.
See ya at the Deli,
