Demographers are in general agreement that the generation that fought in World War II was the greatest in the last hundred years.
Because they were faced with more adversity than most other generations over the same period of time – war in two far away locations, an economy rescued by the war effort and particularly by women who stepped up to serve.
The next great generation may very well be the one coming of age now – in school, college – just starting their lives.
A pandemic, the potential of tough economic times, a disruption of the magnitude that even their parents never experienced.
Which means, they are facing adversity and will rise to meet the challenges.
Adversity introduces a person to him or herself and to those around them so the good news is that we will all overcome these unprecedented challenges because as history has proven beyond a doubt, adversity brings the best out of us.
