weedy_gonzalez Posted September 4, 2003 Share Posted September 4, 2003 so i found it on one of keanu`s website and thought i`d share wiff ya. WHAT IS GENERATION X? Well it's the group of people born between 1961 and 1981. It's that simple. It seems we have come to be called Xers simply because we represent something negative to our elders. We may be the one thing that all of the generations who currently precede us have in common. That is--the ability to speak assuredly about our shortcomings. Of course, they overlook the fact that we are their responsibility, or actually their fault, our generation will be called upon to look after our parents knowing that they failed to look after us. Intergenerational justice failed somewhere along the way and it will be our task to either rectify it or make it worse. We are a group of individuals who grew up with no one at home after school. It appears we have little hope for the future. No jobs, no homes, and basically no money are almost expected of us. These bleak prospects, along with the fact that we will be forced to support the largest amount of senior citizens ever, do not provide much hope. Some believe that these blockades will be too much for us to handle and we will for the most part fail at life, but many see our individualism and resourcefulness that have been built up through our childhoods as our saviors. We will soon discover who is right and who is wrong. me was born in 1983. so does it mean that i belong to the generation Y if there`s any?
