I see the public has gravely underestimated the Millennials. As a parent of Millennials, I understand them a lot better than those who don’t have children in this age group. They are not as lost and naive as the nation precieve and believe them to be. They are very intelligent, savvy and very persistent. These people out there with their brawny gears protesting really don’t know who they are up against.
They’re very determined when they want something. They have the ability to wear you down and make you give in to their demands. They keep coming at you, again and again to get their way. So no, I wasn’t surprised at all when they showed up this weekend to confront those who killed one of them. To them, that’s a grave offense.
Most are rather easy to get along with if you approach to them in a sensible manner.Nor I wasn’t surprised to read in a recent Quinnipiac Poll they are actual the least racist group of adults. They aren’t so easily blinded to the past as their elders are.
They aren’t as critical and judgemental as previous generations. They don’t care what someone is doing, saying or wearing just so long they aren’t hurting anyone. They aren’t going to get out the bed to attend their own business let alone yours. They foster the mentality they got out of bed to go to college or work, take care of their family, visit us parents, grandparents. Mom, dad, grandparents,and little sibling are all fine so their job is done. They’re going back to bed. You worry about your own life and business.
One common thread in this generation. They all like for everything to run smoothly and in their eyes if someone is causing things not to run smoothly then that person have got to go. They don’t care what gender, enthic or race you are. You have got to go because you are busting up their happy dancing.
Believe me when I say they can stop smiling and dancing and get real serious. They only do all the smiling and dancing when happy but seriously, people don’t want to see them when they unhappy.
Their whining and crying is merely a tactic to wear you down. They only does that with the people they loves. But people they couldn’t care less about doesn’t see the whining and crying side of them. They go after them as ruthless as Al Capone but do it with logic and intelligent. They don’t blindly rush into anything.
They don’t always respond immediately when hurt or injustice. I think the delayed respond is they are shocked. They have been taught one thing all their lives and are seeing that all they were taught is nothing but a lie. They go in their emotional cocoon at first and mourn for a while. Asking why people are so mean? Why are they so cruel? Why can’t we all get along? Then they slowly start emerging out of it and eventually not caring what’s your problem as to why you’re acting like a nut. For they intend to end it.
Actually, they maybe the generation able to pull this nation out of the muck it’s been stuck in for nearly three centuries because they don’t view things solely by race, ethnic, nor gender. I mean of course, they have cluster of numbskulls among their age group just as the rest of us and sometimes these are the loudest but aren’t necessarily the most influential. I foresee them waking up and realizing their elders are seriously warped, damaged by the previous generations ideological and taking matters in their own hands and operating a more liberal society. That’s my assessment from rearing and observing them. Maybe I’m wrong. But I do pray I’m not.
