A Different World

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Part of growing up is facing a world that is very different from what it was when you were a child.

Countries that once existed now rest in their graves; dreams change; groups move; the arts evolve; what was once great may now be insignificant; what was once valued is now trashed; old conflicts return. And as the world keeps spinning, we have to learn how to deal.

Humanity, however, we realize is always the same. We cling to our same pride, our same battles, our same selfishness, our same games, our same wonder, our same confusion.

How curious that as so many things change, some remain very much the same.
