By | October 20, 2022

[October 20, 2022]  This is not an attempt at humor.  The question, “Do you want to change the world?” is the mantra of our Millenial generation (those born roughly between 1981 and 1996) but more broadly applied to anyone born after the Baby Boomers generation.  At the same time, Millenials are overprotected, raised by “helicopter” parents and (metaphorically)… Read More »
