The Millennial Generation

by Patrick Liew on May 19, 2014

A wise person from the millennial generation “WhatsApp” the following link to me. He hopes that I will have a better understanding of his generation and be able to relate to them in a more effective way.

It’s a long read and an interesting one.

Without dwelling too much on it or analyzing the content therein, I have to say, the blogpost gave me mixed feelings.

I ended up having more questions than answers.

Are we victims of our successes?

How can our young go through their version of an identity crisis just like my generation went through ours, and come out of it taking society to another higher level?

What can we do to capitalise on tomorrow’s opportunities today Resolve tomorrow’s problems today?

I like the conclusion at the end of the blogpost.

But somehow, I feel that there’s more to be uncovered, more to be analysed, and more to be pursued for a greater good.

I’ve always been a cheerleader for the youth crusade. I have faith in the young.

If the world is going to be changed for the better, they hold one of the major keys.

They do not have to grapple with negative baggages. They have uncorrupted  ideals. They have balls of energy. They can start an inertia and roll it to become a movement to set the world upside down or right side up.

I hope my wise young friend is reading this posting.

The world is your oyster. Go4It!


By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
