Virus response by today’s generation
The kids growing up in the 1930s and 1940s answered the call and fought a war. The ones who stayed home went to the factories and created the arsenal of democracy. We call them the Greatest Generation. In the 1960s and 1970s, the hippies and peaceniks marched by the millions to end a terrible war and end racial injustice. They’re the love generation.
We now have a world pandemic that, the doctors tell us, we can get under control by simply wearing face masks and keeping a social distance.
I see the beaches and street parties, the bars and mask protests and think to myself that this will be remembered as the FU generation.
