I find it astounding that so many people think “young people these days” are apathetic or stupid or lazy or whatever when EVERY SINGLE GENERATION EVER has said the exact same thing about the generation that came after it.
Maybe they’re just a little bit different from you…building and connecting and affecting change in different ways. Maybe you’re basing your assessment on the one kid who smashed your pumpkin and not the 100 million who didn’t. Maybe the fact that you can’t see past your nose says more about you than about the people you think you’re looking at.
The Boomers broke the world. My generation, Gen X, sat and moped about it. The millennials want to fix it. Also, the first millennials are like 30 now. They’re not kids anymore.
