The young cannot teach tradition to the old.Yoruba proverb
Hmmm. The proverb seems reasonable, but the times they are a-changin'.
Tradition is not always right. Traditions of greed, war, guns, hatred, and brutality have not left us, collectively, in a good place.
I'm excited and hopeful when I read about millennials supporting Bernie, youth protesting the treatment of blacks by police, young people all over the globe who are less isolated within their own heritage and more representative of a confluence of cultures. I'm feeling old myself these days. Time is in short commodity. But I do take heart from the young. I think they have much to teach us about both tradition and change.
