each generation has it’s moments, it’s glory, it’s heyday. it also has a treasured memory of how things used to be in the past. it has a connection to nature as well. nature is a part of every generation growing up. they see the trees, the wildlife. they connect with it and wish it would stay forever. what people saw in 1900 was vast and abundant – it was normal to see so much nature. what people people saw in 1950 were still many scenes of beautiful nature all around. at the 2000 mark – nature was still part of the up-bringing experience – and today in 2018 – nature covers many parts of the world – we still connect with nature – even in the suburbs – there are pockets we can look into and get the feeling of being connected to nature. because we don’t know what it felt like in 1900 to see more nature everywhere – we don’t feel as if we are missing out now. we still see nature and we think that we are connecting with nature. regardless of how much nature is left to see, each generation will feel a connection to nature and they will feel like there is still enough nature to see and enjoy. they will feel this when growing up because this is all they know and see. but when people are older, they do go back to where they grew up and they will see the difference of nature then and nature now – they will see how nature is shrinking from generation to generation. but it also won’t affect them that much because they had their time with nature when they were young, no matter how small the natural landscape was compared to previous generations – they felt nature all around them when growing up. they have the memory of nature and that carries them through life. but it doesn’t help the fact that nature is dwindling. it actually hurts the fact that nature is dwindling – because they as individuals have their memory of more nature and that is all they need. they have no desire to help the nature experience of current or future generations.
