What’s in a Name?

February 1st, 2013

Dear Journalists, Newscasters, Commentators and all those who give us the news and information that helps shape our world view:

You can write and say whatever you want about my generation—all I ask is that you spell our name correctly: B-O-O-M-E-R-S.

Sometimes you mix up my generation with the generation before mine, which is spelled  S-E-N-I-O-R-S.

The Depression, and WWII forged the mettle of today’s seniors.

Boomers were weaned on political assassinations, civil rights, feminism. Our mettle was forged thru cultural flux and turmoil.

“S-e-n-i-o-r-s” are “that” generation” and “B-o-o-m-e-r-s” are “this” generation.

Thanks.
