Thank you! All four of my kids were born in the 90s. They and their peers are among the most impressive people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. I like to think my wife and I raised them with these traits (and I’m sure some of that is true) but I see it in most of these young people. It’s true that they don’t carry a lot of the prejudices of earlier generations and their vision of the world differs greatly from their parents (with good reason), they have a completely different set of challenges to overcome. I have more hope for the future now than I did when I graduated high school. And, as one from the very tail end of the baby boom (I was born in July 1964) I happen to believe my generation did a lot more harm than good in preparing this world for our children and grandchildren.
