My Mood:
In general we have this idea that with each successive generation comes more opportunity, more conveniences, more chances for leisure. And so everyone thinks that the generation that comes after them has had the world handed to them on a silver platter, and they don't even appreciate it. You know, the whole "When I was a kid I had to walk uphill in the snow both ways" syndrome. We think we've struggled and they've been coddled.
