The efficacy of generational transfer of sustainable processes is a key factor in trans-generational progression or retrogression. As a matter of fact, what a generation does with what is handed down to it from preceding generations determine how far it will go in being better or worse. You will agree with me that the advancement in technology we have enjoyed today is as a result of proper implementation and use of technological processes that has been handed down from previous generations. Likewise, the moral decadence that has ravaged and is still ravaging our world today can be traced to generational transfer, assimilation and modification of aberrated processes.
Do we blame the past generations? No! Do we cast aspersions on this generation? No! What do we do then? Think of the next generation.
Going through Abraham Lincoln’s letter to his son’s teacher, I saw a generational transfer of a process that will ensure the Lincoln dynasty is one that flourished on integrity and forthrightness.
Robert Todd Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln’s first son, took the Harvard University entrance examination in 1859, but failed fifteen out of the sixteen subjects. He was then enrolled at Phillips Exerter Academy to further prepare for attending college. He finally earned admission into Harvard University in 1860.
Abraham Lincoln may not have been a saint, but he set a generational legacy that was phenomenal.
What the past generation did is a farce and where we are today might be bad. But if nothing is done about the cracks in the wall, the next generation is doomed for a collapse.
I challenge us today to make efforts to fix this breach in process so as to leave a better place for the next generation.
I can! You can! We can!
