Seems I fall into the Baby Boomer category (later end)? As Wayne says, we are the generation that has seen, lived through, even been involved in the greatest time of change. I'm English by the way but I recall every point that Wayne has mentioned.
Due to the progress in technology, some youngsters these days seem to have had their 'playful childhood' taken away and replaced with a 'virtual reality childhood', they are not growing up following any similar path to that which we followed. Their views of life, love, war, politics etc. probably differs from that of ours.
Having said that, progress back to the generation before us, do we fully understand their lives and the connections that they had?
I would say that each generation/era has its own unique connections.
Did we not have disagreements with our parents or grandparents? Do we not now have disagreements with our children and grandchildren?
As Mr Dylan said " The Times They Are A- Changin', and we all have to accept that!
