It has been more than a few times that someone from an earlier generation has begun a diatribe on the calamities of a later generation. Each time, I have stopped them with the phrase, “We are from whence we came.”

I cannot experience WWII as my grandparents did simply because they created an experience absent of  World War.  My generation brought forth technology and consumerism which created the experience of more current generations.  In this, we cannot deny the influence each generation has upon the next and all those that come after.

We would do well not to abdicate the role we play as a generation in what we see as the demise of those that come after us.  Quite simply, “We made it possible.”

Most respectfully,
