Was there a greatest generation? Definitely. But don’t count out the new one.
I recently took a few weeks off to clear my head. Lately, we have been inundated with the worst news; Charlottesville, Hurricane Harvey, and now Irma. The fear is palpable in the air: is this the beginning of the end?
Just when you think it can’t get any worse, we see people rushing to offer their help, even traveling hundreds of miles to drop off supplies to people in need. Race and ethnicity haven’t mattered – all lives, no matter what the color or origin – have mattered.
When we look back at the greatest generations, we think of our fathers and grandfathers who went to war at very young ages. They sacrificed everything to do what they thought was right. They served their country, without question or complaint.
Would the young people of today do the same? The older generations see entitlement and laziness in today’s youth, and I’m usually in that camp as well, and then I watch the news.
There they are, the next generation going to any length to help others; perfect strangers. They aren’t questioning the religious background or ethnicity of any victim. They just see people who need help and they give it 100%. They don’t see any difference, nor do they care.
Was there a greatest generation? Definitely. But, don’t count this new generation out. They rise to the challenge of helping others. Greatest or great, who cares, it just shows that this isn’t the beginning of the end. Not when you have these gallant, “young whipper-snappers” showing the guts and courage of the greatest generation. You made my day. Thank you!
Take my advice for what it is… It’s Just, AS I SEE IT!
