Is Generation Y (those born from 1980-1992) the next greatest generation? Consider: 1. We came of age through 9/11. 2. We volunteered to fight two wars, with nary a complaint. 3. Many of us were just starting our careers when the Great Recession hit. 4. We will be the ones who will clean out of the mess left by the baby-boomer leadership. 5. As we came-of-age, crime rates, teen pregnancy rates, and promiscuity rates all fell, while education rates rose. 6. We are returning to the cultural work ethic and style of the 1950s and early 1960s. 7. We fully expect to have a more difficult time than our parents, and assume all major social programs will collapse by the time we need them. On the other hand: 1. We are spoiled by technology like never before. 2. We are endlessly optimistic and maintain a sense of entitlement. 3. We tend to put relationships before work. 4. We are resentful of the prior generations who have handed so many problems off to us. Your thoughts?
