Short and Sweet Thoughts

Generational Awe

When my parents were kids and visited Disneyland or Disney World, the sense of awe and wonder had to have been off the charts due to the level of technology being a lot lower than it is today.

Kids today have a level of personal technology that potentially makes the theme park less amazing and more a one-shot novelty. They still have fun, but perhaps only to please their parents for whom this trip equates to dollars spent, not imagination fueled. For value achieved, not memories created.
