Will a Shortening Attention Span Affect Our Memory?

How many things are you bombarded with on a daily basis? I marvel when I spend time with our preaching minister who tells stories from his childhood from several decades ago. He remembers the names, situations, nicknames, locations, and just about any other detail you can remember. Besides the fact that he has an amazing memory, it makes me wonder if as we are bombarded with more and more messages our attention spans will shorten and our memories will get worse. There was a study done recently that showed older people do in fact have a better memory than younger people. Could it be because the younger generation is constantly bombarded with zillions of images and bits of information, names, websites, etc that it makes it hard to really remember very much of what they are experiencing?
