Sadly (and happily) we're too far removed.


The average age of those who stormed the beaches...TWENTY. Even at that age, they had already endured the Great Depression. 20-year-olds today think hardship is not having cell service.

Our parents/grandparents responded to a global crisis by rationing, donating and volunteering; our generation raids the grocery stores of toilet paper and fills plastic bags with gasoline.

Our parents/grandparents saw 6 million innocent people starved and executed in concentration camps, our generation thinks getting the vaccine is somehow comparable. They saw black people prohibited from schools, hotels, restaurants, we compare it to standing in line to vote.

Long story short, we have no friggin' clue, nor do we care to remember.
