Does the new generation remember the sacrifices of older generation?One of my maternal uncles used to say that life is like a relay race. The previous generation runs a race and hands over the baton to the new generation. Then the new generation starts running. But the race never ends. The family progresses from generation to generation. Similarly, civilization progresses from generation to generation.
My father always thinks that it is the duty of older generation to prepare the new generation to face the challenges of life with confidence. The old generation sacrifices a lot to give proper education (not only academic education) and values to face the challenges of life. The sacrifices of the older generation to prepare the new generation cannot be described in the limited space.
But the moot question is – Does the new generation remember or understand the sacrifices of older generation? If the new generation does not, the future of the future generations will be very bleak.
(I planned to post a thread on similar lines for the last TOW contest, but could not due to my pre-occupations. So, I have raised this thread now.)
