All us baby boomers need to read this article and then remind ourselves the world was NOT created for us. The people of the First Nations have this quotation:
" We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.". Let's remind ourselves of this fact.
We babyboomers are in danger of becoming the most despised generation of people ever produced. We consume without the slightest interest of the impact we have on our world. We seek only that which is benefical to ourselves. Our politics are of the most selfish of natures. We care only for our needs. We are corrupt and unthinking, and it's time we GROW UP!!!!
Remember you have children and perhaps you older BB's have grandchildren. Stop thinking of ourselves and think about them.
It's not too late to change.
