Page 46 2023 Home For The Holidays Lincoln Daily News November 23, 2022 Regardless of whenever the two figures were first depicted together, one thing is true: the passing of wisdom on to the next generation is incredibly important. Just as Father Time passes knowledge and wisdom on to Baby New Year, it is the responsibility of older generations to pass on their knowledge and wisdom to the next. Human life is one that is filled with countless experiences, and all those unique experiences cause people to change over time, becoming even wiser with each passing year. The more life experience one has, the more wisdom they acquire. Everyone acquires different types of wisdom depending on what they’ve experienced in life. When one shares their stories and experiences with someone else, it can help guide a younger, more inexperienced person away from mistakes that have already been made by those that have come before them. While it is the responsibility of older generations to share this knowledge, it is just as much the responsibility of younger generations to recognize this wisdom and knowledge. They must have enough humility to accept that there are others who know more than them and understand that they can learn from these people. When these two things are true, we are able to ensure the generations that come after us are equipped with the knowledge and wisdom to become even wiser than those that came before.
