I can only agree with the fact that the letter writer’s generation was not responsible for the current situations in today’s world. However, as a young person making his way into this world, it’s important that he remember that the older generations could have or did blame the previous generation in a similar way.

Historically, the younger generation has never been left with an ideal situation. As each generation moves into its own, a mess is left for someone else to clean up. If your generation can take away one thing from what is going on in this country today, don’t play the blame game. Rise above it. In doing so, you will help to make this a better world for the generation behind you (our grandchildren) and then yours will truly be the greatest generation.
