A Boomer’s Point-of-View: Something to Discuss This #Thanksgiving

Category: A Boomer's Point-of-View

Peanuts Thanksgiving comic strip

I’ve sworn off public politics because it seems to hard to have any dialogue (these days). But, as a parent of two millennials, I can’t help but worry about their futures and, this Thanksgiving, I want to share a short piece from a column that I found particularly relevant. A link to the entire column is after this excerpt…

“I admit that people make these complaints about every new generation. But millennials seem seriously off-kilter, and we made them this way. A generation that has grown up in more affluence and personal freedom than any other in history has been taught to hate the free enterprise wealth-creation process that gave them what they want in the first place. A generation that has been drilled since pre-kindergarten that the highest virtue in life is tolerance has suddenly become the least tolerant in history.

What they lack most is gratitude. It’s something to think about this Thanksgiving.”
