Expand definition of greatest generation

TumwaterNovember 22, 2012 

In my opinon, Tom Brokaw and William Cosgrove need to expand their vision of America’s greatest generation. Once again, they divide us as a nation.

To my way of thinking the greatest generation includes the young man who has a nose ring and smokes a cigarette.

Don’t forget the young women with two hyperactive children. She’s on her way to the local library and she’s determined to build a better life for her family. How about the veteran from Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and their suffering families waiting back home. Relax America, we are all God in motion. Give your thanks on turkey day and enjoy our wonderful holiday season.
