Title: G-- Generations

Blog Entry: Generations.   My generation is called Baby Boomers, due to the 'boom' in births after WW II.  Technically, I think the 'boomer' generation goes from the mid 1940's till around 1960. But what the heck are "Millenials"? Or "gen X'ers"?  I had to look them up. Apparently, "Gen X" is the generation after ours, having been born between the mid 1960's to the early 1980's. And "Millenials" (also known as the Y generation) are those born from the early 1980's to the early 2000's. Whatever you call the 'younger' generations, they are definitely different from ours! It's an entirely different world they were born into. They've never known what it's like to live under the threat of nuclear war, during the Cold War. Most of them have never known a world without 'instant' access to news. Most of them can't understand why 'we' refer to our younger days as 'the good old days'.  But, of course, I can say that about our generation when we think about those who were born before WW II. I suppose there will always be a "Generation Gap". That's just life.
