I’m looking forward to reading it! We are hardly ever spoken about and it’s unfortunate because we’re a wealth of experience. We’re the generation when everything started to change and not for the better or worse, but drastically.

I think of all the historic events that took place from the mid 60’s (I was born in 1973) through the late 80’s that are never talked about.

My daughter was having a panic attack so I used a technique with her that has always immediately distracted and calmed me and I think it’s because no mater how many times I’ve watched it I’m still wowed (and admittingly embarrassed) that it was ever a thing…

I played her the “Official” We are the World video on YouTube. She was wowed as well, and possibly traumatized by Bruce Springsteen’s intensity.
