A Millennial Reckoning

I have been thinking about all these things, am even watching a documentary on my local television station called “My Millennial Life” and I don’t know where I fit into all of this, but I wish for more understanding between all age groups. Wonderfully summed up by Lizzi and so I couldn’t resist sharing her take on the subject.

Thanks to William Strauss and Neil Howe, my birthdate lands me with the term ‘Millennial’, dripped sneeringly from the lips of those Gen X-ers (born ’61 – ’81) for whom Gen Y (’81 – ’00) holds little standing. It’s derisive and speaks to the tension between generations (now we’ve learned to classify ourselves as such, and raise the drawbridges around our terms of self-identification) that seems to exist ever-increasingly in a world which is changing too fast for anyone, really, to keep up with.
