La beauté intergénérationnelle

Unfortunately, the current crisis of the COVID-19 highlighted our vulnerability. The older people, the teenagers also. The solitude, as the virus has wreaked havoc. I hope that it has become aware, through all the sadness of the events, of the importance that each generation can bring to others. And that the word family brings to all ages. On our screens, it is not uncommon to see the links forged between the generations, as evidenced by the following series.
