I think we woke a sleeping giant!
I’ve been pretty critical of Millennials but this new Generation Z is a different beast. The rash of school shootings and their grassroots student response has is encouraging. I’ve recently started calling Generation Z the “Generation WTF.” As in, WTF are you going to do about guns? WTF are you going to about the environment (R.I.P. last white rhino)? They’re big (they now outnumber baby boomers). They’re connected by social media. They’ve been hardened by tragedy. And they’re starting to vote! I’m a big fan of peaceful, social defiance and loved the recent student walkouts. A teacher told my Senior daughter the walkout was disrespectful. I think (hope) it was the first roars of a (no longer) sleeping giant.
