Scotellaro: the happiness of Millennials | Comment
I spawned two. I was born in 1936 and not in 1946, the official demographic date of the “Boomer” generation and the fathers of millennials. Although born demographically 10 years too early and a member of the “silent generation”, I actively believed in the principles of a branch of the baby boomer generation called the hippies from an early age – and with such propensity I have raised my two millennia.
I was recently brought back to the fondest memories of that time after my children told me why so many younger members of their generation did not come to live and work full-time in Vermont. Most willingly come to visit to enjoy and experience an abundance of outdoor activities in nature to satisfy their constantly challenged lives, but for them there are not enough of what they call urban experiences ( cities) here. These millennials and millions like them need both types of experience to achieve their version of the American dream.
