As a monument-building generation, we ought to be less concerned that our monuments speak to the younger generations than that they understand why they speak to us. In time, they’ll build their own monuments. But if we’ve been faithful in living up to the best our monuments represent, ours may serve as building blocks for theirs. And if you are in the generations coming on, don’t be too quick to dismiss what may seem to be stuck-in-the-mud ways of doing things in the generations ahead of you. There are some values behind those things that in time, you’re going to want to know about.
