In Stories of Elders, Veronica Kirin makes a compelling case for why we must use technology with intent. We must become aware of our vulnerabilities, set boundaries, and realize that technology is a tool and it’s up to us to take responsibility and determine its impact.
Through the combination of touching anecdotes and well-researched evidence, Veronica illustrates the juxtaposition of the benefits and the consequences of modern day technologies for The Greatest Generation.
In an ever-faster-moving world of technology, change is par for the course. As we travel forward, we run the risk of losing wisdom which previous generations have taken for granted. In this book, author Veronica Kirin does a marvelous job of chronicling this wisdom through stories of our elders.
When I’m watching TV, YouTube, or reading Facebook, I often wonder how we’ve arrived in a culture that is so different than the one I grew up with. In this documentary style book, Kirin answers my question by taking us on a journey that dives into personal stories around how technology has changed the lives of everyday people. Love it!
Stories of Elders is an extraordinary book filled with emotionally powerful stories from those who have experienced things far beyond the experience of Millennials. Veronica has expertly captured the essence of her subjects, with each story being awe-inspiring in their own right!
Stories are so important to remembering who we are and where we come from. The way Veronica has managed to capture and preserve these important stories about a generation that watched the world change before their eyes is stunning. We need their stories to remember where we came from and to hopefully guide us where we are going.
