We have no control over the unique times and teachings that will occur during our formative years and will mold our generations' unique and lifelong core values...When we all acknowledge this fundamental truth, we suddenly find ourselves making peace with the different values and attitudes of the other generations, and we then start rooting for those other generations to find their own success and happiness in life..And we hope they'll understand our generations' unique values and start rooting for us too. And by embracing that outlook,
America's generation gaps begin to shrink."
