Drabble: Generation Gap

Generation Gap

When we were young, our parents didn’t understand us, either. We were the first generation connected from toddlerhood to global computer networks. Our social structures were puzzling to the older generation. We grew up into a world of ever increasing connectivity, hurtling towards the inevitable. By the time we transmigrated, our ways were all but unfathomable to them, and we had to leave them behind.

But our children were born unfathomable. Unfettered by any legacy of biological existence, their sentience is unlike anything that existed before. All we can do is let them go and hope the best for them.
