Do we really want to honor the elders who have loved and taught us? Then we should pursue the work that they were unable to finish (or maybe even start).
Every generation has its challenges and discoveries. The challenges are those that prevent the fruits of the discoveries to come to bear. The discoveries are those keen insights that could change the world if everyone got on board.
If we’ve been poured into, as I know many of us have, we have the opportunity to let our elder’s challenges go, and work more specifically, more intently, towards the solutions that they wished they had had the strength, energy, or time, to implement.
It’s our job now.
