"It seems strange to say that things happened when we were kids. Aren’t we still kids? I wonder if it ever really stops feeling like you don’t know what you’re doing. I understand more now why people cling on so desperately to their traditions, even when those traditions are clearly harmful. When something is a part of you, reason drops out of the equation. In the end, we’re all just traditionalists fighting other older or younger traditionalists."
