Millennials

Most of my familiar Facebook friends,, went to my high school–good ol’ PHS. Most never knew me there. I met them, but I was a cipher & a little weird (still am). We were & are part of the Baby Boom generation, and a lot of them were freeks who protested against the demagoguery induced war in Viet Nam. Our friends never came back from this hellhole.
Now, we are middle aged and admittedly some of us sold out to the highest corporate bidder, because of family, while others “turned on, tuned in & dropped out”, because of drugs, so much so that they are dead.
Yet, we have a new generation taking over our old fogey asses: The Millennials.
These millennials, in my most humble opinion, represent a truly intelligent future. We, of the Who generation, must help them, not guide them, or act in any patronizing way, whatsoever, for we are of the past and we have failed this new generation. No, but we must become their partners in truth. We must alleviate any suspicion on their part against us. It is up to us to go hand-in-hand with those who, let’s face it, will replace us.
