The greatest generation

By From page A5 | June 30, 2014

EDITOR:

As a parent I’ve had my share of many a sleepless nights worrying about my children’s future and the future of this country.

My concern is, do our children have the same opportunities in life that I had at their age? Is the “system” damaged to a point where people won’t be able to pursue their happiness that I was?

The economy and the world has changed so much in the past 30 years that I worry our way of life is over. Gone like the dinosaur, the pay phone and the thermo fax machine.

I’m not worried that our children aren’t as intelligent or as motivated as I was because I know that they are by far more equipped and have already done more at their age than I did.

In studying these young people I have discovered that they are a lot like us old farts in many ways, and have learned to not repeat our past mistakes. This next generation is taking over our world rather quickly. I feel comforted and I believe that they have every opportunity to become the greatest generation.
