I am also ashamed that my generation was the first to deal with divorce going from rarely to common-place, and damn those whiny kids for getting bummed out. I am also disgraced that we were put down for dressing provocatively and listening to music our parent's didn't like, etc, Mostly I am upset that I was not a member of the first generation who was dying to be just like their parents. Especially since they were kind enough to bring the drug war (people too old to do drugs saying young people can't do them - irony? nah).
My grandparent's generation will be remembered as the ones who went through The Depression, Prohibition, and WWII and came out squeaky clean on the other end. Great work ethic, strong morals, family values. And gave birth to a generation who flipped them off and all their ideals. Will they be remembered the way they see themselves?
As a Gen X'er I am not really too concerned how my generation is remembered. I think we were just normal kids, trying to get along and have fun. We didn't need to jump on a bandwagon to justify having fun and being free. And I think we have a lot more respect for our kids than can be said for the Baby Boomers.
Jackdaw forfeited this round.
