  • Generation X
    791 words
    I believe that Generation X exists, however, I do not think that everyone in this generation fits the description peddled by the media. The media feels the need to hang labels on each generation and give them each their own characteristics, but I fail to see the reasoning in all the name calling and insults.

  • Term Generation X
    1,233 words
    Did you know that you are considered part of the first generation symbolizing the decline of the nation? Generations are labeled all the time by historians, novelists and journalist in an attempt to capture the spirit or essence of an era. But the term Generation X carries all the negativity of propaganda and stereotype. The term Generation X has become a derisive media batch phrase, a snide put-down for those 80 million people who, like me, were born between 1961 and 1981. They are the children...
