A Thought on this Generation

We are the video game, Harry Potter, manga, action blockbuster generation: pining after a sense of epic adventure we can never experience, desiring the nation-breaking power we can never wield, seeing the evil that besets our world, but only being able to sit back in a movie theater and watch. When we see a problem, we raise awareness of it by wearing little ribbons or by walking a couple of kilometers, hoping that someone else will come and solve it. We are used to instant gratification from microwaves, medical technology, ATMs, credit cards, and the internet, and, as a result, we lack the drive to accomplish the goals set by our gigantic ideals. In short, we are the people who talk the talk, but can't walk the walk. Obviously, we see the problems. We "rebel" against everything from organized religion to our parents, because we see the problems that have been caused by the people before us. We're growing up now, and it's time to try to grasp reality as well as the ideals we need to order it. But all we know how to grasp are xbox controllers.
