What will we explore? My lightsaber seventeen year old asks


My sev­en­teen year old daugh­ter usu­al­ly qui­et, takes off her ear phones while pick­ing up her lightsaber chop­sticks and says

 

My friends were lament­ing on how unlucky our gen­er­a­tion is.…

WE ARE TOO LATE TO EXPLORE THE WORLD FREELY

WE ARE TOO EARLY TO EXPLORE SPACE

I just said to them.

WE ARE IN TIME TO EXPLORE OUR MINDS

A smile breaks on her face as she puts  her earplugs in and flicks her  lightsabers on and chop­sticks her way through Thai peanut chick­en and rice.

She knows she’s striked and won.

Two days on my eyes still well up.
