I write this out of love, a desire to inform, and a deep concern for where we are and where we are going. The over-analyzed, overly entitled, and increasingly struggling generation of Americans born roughly between 1981 and 1997 have been berated by a never ending stream of articles about them in recent years. They are the most ethnically and racially diverse in America’s melting pot so far, behind only the generation to follow it. Millennials...
