I notice in many places that my Generation ( lets say from 1990-2010) gets talked down upon by the older generations. Of course there are the nut
heads who present bad manners and disrespect to their peers and elders, but these people are present in every generation. I see many highlights in are
generation that could help us change the world.
I have witness many prodigies just in my own area where I live. In fact a guy in my grade was given a record deal along with his brother and sister
this last August. I have read articles of Teens inventing products that will end up helping society. My generation shows a lot of potential, now
potential doesn't always lead to success, but I believe we can achieve greatness.
A lot of the blame of my generation's laziness is technology and social media. And yes social media and technology have made some people lazy, but
being exposed with technology has made my generation smarter too. I have witnessed this with my younger cousins, who had figured out how to work an
Iphone at the ages of 2 and 3. The mischievous teens who hack and modify scripts with technology also causes blame upon my generation. But, what
people don't realize is that you have to be fairly smart to be able to do this, and as theses teens mature they will become excellent programers when
they get older. I believe that the talk about social media makes my generation less social is bull crap.
I've always been kind of shine, but
since becoming a member on a streaming website called twitch I have become a lot more social, I even went to a gaming event to meet some friends on
twitch that I had only had the chance to chat with online before then. From what I have noticed so far, my generation is extremely sociable, which
will hep us work together to accomplish goals and conquer problems.
It seems that when my generation gets talked about, people are only referring to the U.S. why not talk about the generation that covers the whole
globe? We can't all be bad. With the inclusion of social media, many of my generation are becoming friends with people from different countries, this
will be valuable because it will allow our generation to work together with others in different countries to help complete projects etc.
Many people believes something major will happen in the next couple of decades or so. I believe my generation will change the world. One of my
favorite themes comes from the book Ender's Game where Ender'e brother Peter says age doesn't matter when changing the world, a person just needs to
be in the right place at the right time after the right event, and if you read the Shadow series, you can see Peter put that into action. At my school
itself I notice that my classmates see through the government (U.S) and it's lies, many of them want to be politicians to help change that.
Personally, I plan to change the field of meteorology and it's relationship with the public and helping communities become safer during natural
This negativity against my generation needs to stop.
It's will only make our generation worse. And if you really worried about my generation
(at least in the U.S) then you guys need to fight for reforming our colleges, which is where a lot of the corruption occurs.
My generation is still very young, we should not be judged at this point because most of us are still in middle school and high school. It hurts me
every time I hear, or read or watch adults talk down on my generation while we haven't even had the chance to make an impact on society yet. The
purpose of this rant was to enlightening people not to judge my generation yet and not to lose hope on us, because we may surprise you of what we can
