Observation-the blame game
« on: September 21, 2018, 07:28:51 am »
I saw a post on fb today: Adult college students need therapy because their candidates lost. In high school we watched 3000 Americans get murdered on live tv. We didn't go to therapy, we went to war.


At first I laughed because it is somewhat true. However thousands needed and still need therapy from 9/11. Thinking a little further, we are blaming kids (adult children) for how they were raised. They didn't all of a sudden go off to college and become needy, that is how they were raised.

Iíve seen that and think it is inflammatory. Itís just another attempt at slamming liberals.

I don't know about you, but 9/11 threw me into a depression for 6 months.  I wanted to climb into bed and stay there.  But I had a toddler.  And I didn't know anybody at the Twin Towers, Pentagon or PA who lost their life.  It was still traumatic for me.  All those college students were children when 9/11 happened.  Not only have they grown up knowing that thousands died in one day in the worst terrorist attack on any country ever but they grew up knowing that children were being gunned downed in their own schools where they're supposed to be safe and instead of the adults passing common sense gun control laws to get the high powered military style weapons off out of the stores and away from the public, we've decided we love our guns more than the nation's children.  Is it any wonder that this generation suffers from so much anxiety and depression?

I think that certain older individuals will stop at nothing to sneer at millennials and gen z. I can think of a lot of clapbacks for that,  but it boils down to someone who would rather try and compare two unrelated subjects to support their ignorance, than focus on their own problems.

That's nonsense.  As is your observation that you were just so tough when you were in HS that you went to war to kill the people responsible for 9/11.  My daughter was in HS and while she did come to me and ask if I thought she should join some branch of the armed forces because of 9/11 she didn't.  Instead she went on to get a doctorate and is even now trying to solve a major health crisis which affects people all over the globe instead.  Joining up is one solution but not the ONLY solution.  It doesn't make you the best or the toughest.  I agree-the kind of remark to which you refer is inflammatory at best.

I don't think you read my post accurately. I probably should have put a : after fb today. The whole first paragraph was a post from fb. And no, I was not in high school on 9/11, far from it.

agreed. some people will do or believe anything to feel superior to the younger generation.

it's really sad actually.
