As we progress through life, it’s not uncommon to find a disconnect between those older and younger than us. Especially during politically charged times the gaps between generations start to show, whether at a family dinner table, or in conversations between friends. Not only can these differences show through political opinions, but also through general interests, aspirations, the treatment of others, and individual life experiences.
How do these gaps manifest themselves? Will they have a great effect on the world in the far future, or can these effects already be seen? Can these gaps heal, or will they split even further? Take a look at how generations differ in fashion, architecture, and culture, maybe these deviations even show themselves outside of the human race. Generations span over aeons and the gaps between them appear in many different forms, so don’t be afraid to challenge how generational gaps can be seen.
