The high-tech lifestyles of Millennials have either pushed them into economic and business savvy greatness or made them too complacent to take on life’s challenges. in 2019, Millennials will be the largest U.S. Generation as 77 million Boomers approach old age and retirement. But are the next generations strong enough and prepared to meet the challenge?
The life cycle from young to old is filled with challenges and rewards. The “OK Boomer” movement, like other past generational movements, creates generational identity and solidarity but also distracts from necessary conversation. As a boomer, I recognize the need for ushering in a New America; we did the same in the 1960’s. Let’s show some respect for our humanity, enjoy the ride into progress, and remember that the youth of today are the boomers of tomorrow.
