Now I will be the first to admit that my previous post seemed to create a differing of opinions.
We are all entitled to our opinions and I would never begrudge someone theirs.
Oh sure there was the usual banter back and forth and a difference of opinions…
I even received a private email disclosing some family facts, with regards to a ten year old who already has a cell phone, a laptop, xbox, wii, dirt bike..etc.. ..a very lucky boy to have all these items at such an early age…
One of the first comments I received did not agree with what I had written..they had said that my wording was a bit confusing..and a bit generalized..or as someone else called it ‘ painting everyone with the same brush’..
‘Fast forward to 2011 and we have what I want to call the ‘now generation’..kids that are between the ages of 20-30 and seem to think that they should have the best of the best..’
They are correct..it could be taken out of context..what it should have said was …some of the young adults between the ages of 20-30 that we have met seem to think that they should have the best of the best..
I am not apologizing for what I wrote..we are all entitled to our opinion…as a parent of one of these 20 something young adults..I was just observing some behaviour that made me wonder about why it was happening…
As I said yesterday…is the commercialization of our society that makes ‘some young adults’ feel the need to indulge in the designer clothes, purses..etc…??
Now at first I was just going to stay silent and not continue discussing this..that was until I got a this comment from ‘anonymous’
I agree completely with YsMum that you have painted everyone 20's something with the same brush. This includes all those fine young men and women serving in the military and giving their lives in places such as Iraq and Afghanistan - they are the young people you are talking about too.
My feeling is that people who attack younger generations are doing so because they are unhappy with their own lot in life and regret not having achieved their own dreams so lash out at others instead.
Now, this comment brought tears to my eyes..to think that someone would think that I was including the fine men and women that are serving in Afghanistan..
I would say that you, Mr. Anonymous are the one who is taking things completely out of context…..
did you just say it for cause and effect?
How dare you even think that I am that heartless?
And then there is the next sentence to say that …I am jealous of the younger generation because I am so unhappy with my own life and that is why I am lashing out..…my dreams are just fine thank you very much…
and if you were a regular reader you would know that..
once again someone who hides behind the dreaded ‘anonymous’…has put ‘black mark’ on what was only meant to be an observation on my part..
Will I delete the post from yesterday?..definitely not!
I will just be more careful not to generalize..
So the only thing I will apologize for is not proofreading a bit closer.
My life is not perfect and neither am I.….I am just a blogger putting my thoughts and observations out there in blog-ville…read if you want and if you don’t?…so be it…. my feelings won’t be hurt.
‘nuff said on that subject..now back to the regular programming…
