Generation without traces

Our youth will be the first generation to leave no trace. They will not leave letters. From their youth, when everything is so sharp and indivisible, though they realize later that is not the case. They will not leave letters when they will be older – to friends with whom they will miss earlier unimportant days. They will not leave their drawing, they will not leave shredded, wrinkled, folded paper, envelopes with addresses, stamps, names of those to whom and from whom.

They will not leave photos. All their photos will disappear in electronic chaos. They will be not able to take an album with photos, they will not write on the other side – there isn’t where to write. They will not take photos into their hands, will not look smiling or deeply thinking. And when they will leave, won’t pass it on to others.

They won’t leave diaries. Neither short or long one, neither smart or silly. No one will be able to read what they and their days were like. They will not be able to read diaries after a while.

Hello, the era of fashion gadgets, computers, and social networks!. You manage to delete us from the real world.

  1. I disagree.
    This generation and those that follow will leave more than any generation before ever has. The pictures, thoughts, and dreams shared on social platforms.

    The world is new now, the information is slowly moving to digital. The reality of letters is that they are private, unique and disappear over time.

    Sorry, but as I said I disagree. There is more in the world now than ever before.
