But one musician, in particular, Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, gave a moving speech at the music festival, specifically about living in — and appreciating — the moment.
“What I’m starting to realize — all we really have is memories at the end of the day. That’s all we are.”
Glover likened his generation — millennials — to data, passing memories to our children, friends, and family. But there’s an issue with having so much data, he said.
“We have so much data, like, we know what’s gonna happen,” he said. “We’re too afraid to plant a tree that we know we’re not going to eat from.”
Glover’s candid moment continued as he urged people to think about how fleeting life is.
