Life is difficult. And everyone seems determined to convince we of the millennial breed that we're lazy, ungrateful, little so-and-so's.
It's not ungrateful to want to work for a fair wage.
It's not ungrateful to want good working conditions and some dignity.
It's not ungrateful for us to want something better than working our ever-loving butts off just to live at a basic level of existence.
It's not ungrateful for us to want a future - a home that we can actually own one day, the prospect of something better, and the hope that one day we may even be able to retire.
(Ha, yeah, that's gonna happen! I'm going to drop dead at the age of 100, still trying to meet a deadline so I can pay the rent. Yay.)
So it doesn't matter what the generations that came before us think - they're not exactly winning prizes for what they've done to this world.
Maybe... maybe this is our chance to make things better? Somehow?
To stop this merry-go-round before our children (provided we have any) are forced to fight it out in the arena for the glory of their Districts? Maybe?
Breaking the mould
Don't be afraid to take the path less travelled guys - no matter how scary it may be.
