The new generation - Guest F. Raushawn

Please welcome our Teen Guest, F. Raushawn, author of Spectrum, a free short story from Phenomenal One Press, www.phenomenalone.press check it out for free. Spectrum is also a feature short story in Bandits.


Why does it seem as though children in today’s age seem more technology savvy then, say the children before them? Why do your younger siblings always seem to excel at things that took you years to do? The reason is they are the new generation and the new generation has beaten the older generations from sports all the way to academics no matter what situation they always find at least one way to surpass your obstacles. Maybe it's because it's easier to improve from something that's already been accomplished rather than trying to think that big in the first place. The new generation is taking over but in a way we kind of need that improvement to make man kind better.

This new generation takeover has been going on since the beginning of time. Like a competition to do better than the person before you. I remember as a child I always wanted to exceed my older cousin in whatever sport or activity I played. This actually made me a better player and now I dominate in sports were he could not, thus successfully improving as the new generation.

Although I doesn’t feel good to be surpassed by a younger group being the older and wiser you have to accept it, because as humans alone we find ways to make things that once seemed hard easier to overcome. I know for a fact my younger brother will excel in places where I've peeked. I'll make sure of it. Which is why we live in the world we do today if nobody ever exceeded anyone else we would still be living in the stone ages. So if I have to take a hit to my pride in order for my future children to live in a better world then so, be it. Long live the new generations (ha-ha).

I think I was about 10 when my mother was searching for something on the computer. I told her a much faster way to find what she was looking for,

Mum was in customer service in a computer company. I only played games and drew on the computer, but I knew how to navigate it better.

My little brother is 10 years younger than me. I remember a time before the internet, for him it's always been there. He is much better at navigating the internet than me. I feel proud because I taught him the basics.
