The diversity among generations is sometimes more apparent than others. It is hard to tell if you are not trying to point out these differences in lifestyle. However, there are times even I can see the divide. Reading is something I have always enjoyed, even as a little girl. My favorites include fantasy, sci-fi, and romance. I am finding more and more that my peers do not find this pastime as entertaining as I do because whenever I try to recommend a book they give me a look of confusion. They do not understand the pure joy and wonder that a book can give. For me, reading is the doorway to new worlds and adventures that we can explore. I am always consumed in my book and I even find myself longing to be a part of that world. I look at this diversity among our generation as a sort of philosophical connection. Where others are into movies and television to find entertainment, us that enjoy reading connect with the older generation. The oldies stick to reading because it is all they know and what they were raised on. But for the youngsters we read because we feel our imagination can tell the story way better than any movie ever could. I think that says a lot about what type of person you are and what values you have in life. I think it is important to realize what your values are and live by them every day. I would consider myself very old fashioned and traditional, and for me, I know I will always stick by my values and beliefs. Although there is diversity among us on what we believe in, we can always connect on the fact that we all have our own values and strive to live by them.
