We were the generation born into a world of such promise and prosperity
We were raised to believe that there were certain things that simply didn't change.
Money would always be there
Families stick together
There is good and there is evil
No one can take away your freedom
We are safe
It has been more than two decades since we came into this world
Two decades for us to learn that all we were taught was a lie
You are entitled to nothing
Families are self destructive
There is only interest, no good, no evil
Your freedom is negotiable
We aren't safe
We aren't bitter, we are apathetic.
We tried to change things, and when we need to be heard, they just pushed us aside.
We've given up, they still run this world, and until they're finally buried in the mountain of the filth they created, we'll take over, and realize the potential that our parents squandered.
For now we sit and wait, staring at our monitors, chatting with people we've never met, sharing ideas without borders, and finding friends in places we never imagined.
We are a generation free from fear, free from hate, free in all things but what is on paper. And while we patiently wait our turn, we look on and watch as our parents generation continues to make a mess of things, and ultimately mock their folly. For while they refuse to listen to reason, from each other or otherwise, we keep taking, we keep sharing ideas, we these denizens of the internet.
