A Lost Generation

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
I am part of a Lost Generation and I refuse to believe that I can change the world. I realize this may be a shock, but "Happiness comes from within" is a lie and "Money will make me happy." So in 30 years I will tell my children they are not the most important thing in my life. My employer will know that I have my priorities straight because work is more important than family. I tell you this, once upon a time families stayed together but this will not be true in my era. This is a quick fix society. Experts tell me 30 years from now I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce. I do not concede that I will live in a country of my own making. In the future, environmental destruction will be the norm. No longer can it be said that my peers and I care about this Earth. It will be evident that my generation is apathetic and lethargic. It is foolish to presume that there is hope. And all of this will come true unless we choose to reverse it. There is hope. It is foolish to presume that my generation is apathetic and lethargic. It will be evident that my peers and I care about this Earth. No longer can it be said that environmental destruction will be the norm. In the future, I will live in a country of my own making.
