Every generation, especially since World War II, has to have a title.

Those before the Baby Boomers were defined by the great event of their era, such as the Great Depression. If you are born within a certain span of time, you are put in that generation.

There was a lot of talk about Generation X with its cynicism and rejection of the values of the generation before. By natural course of things my generation, those born between 1981 and 1995, are being called Generation Y for lack of a better name. We will probably soon be dubbed something else by the media.

“Millennials” is a popular term that probably best fits those who graduated high school in 2000 as I did. Despite the fact these names are being said, they are not said with confidence that even Generation X was said. We are not defined yet as events that we could be defined by are not constant.
