I can agree with all that.Oh come on, people. Like every other generation, the Boomers have done some great things and some dumb things. We may not be leaving a Utopia for our kids and grandkids, but let's give credit where credit is due.
Here's my list:
Seatbelts and drunk-driving laws
Pioneers of rock and roll
Personal computers/cell phones
Screen time and the expansion of television
Saturday Night Live
Iconic entertainment and movies--think Jaws and Star Wars
The age of volunteering: Peace Corps
We marched and protested for civil rights, war, women and LGBTQ
We kickstarted environmental progress/awareness
Huge progress in science, medicine and forensics
We increased life expectancy
So a little praise would be good. Could we have done better? SURE! Our country is now and has always been a 'work in progress'. We're handing it off to Gens X, Y, Z....OK Boomers....let it go...and wish them luck.
