You may not agree with my opinion, but that’s okay. I am just tired of the point of view embodied in the above.
Millions of Americans over many decades built their lives with hard work, effort, sacrifice and overcoming many obstacles. That includes native born and immigrant Americans, many who overcame extra obstacles like language and racism.
They worked their way through college, they worked their way up in a job, they may have worked extensive overtime or two jobs, they may have started a business.
They experienced four major wars, a pandemic, several dreaded illnesses mostly a memory today, a depression and a major drought.
They served in the military by choice or the draft, but they served.
The asked for little they didn’t earn. Who eased their financial burden?
We seem to have gone from the greatest generation to the greatest generation of complainers.
