we resent our parent's generation for being able to find stable jobs, afford a mortgage, access public services. the next generation will resent us for being able to afford to eat, live above sea level
The work I've done to help inner city kids and families has been intended to help create a brighter future for my own kids and grandkids, too.
My generation, the boomers has accumulated huge wealth, talent and experiences, that could be spent trying to make the future more positive than what it's projected to be.
However, that will require deeper thinking, systems thinking, complex problem solving and more than a token commitment of time, talent and dollars.
@jumblesale OTOH, I'd totally live at the bottom of the ocean and be pumped about it.
