Good afternoon readers;
I would like to get a few words off my chest that have been weighing me down for a while now. Recently I have encountered that this generation (Millennials) are a bit different than genXers. Millennials have developed a sense of being overly sensitive. They can not be criticized on what they do or how they do it. The appreciation factor is at an all time low with them. Most of them won't do something out of kindness or out of spontaneity. They would rather live a life of being asked to accomplish something that is warmhearted and or heart felt instead of seeing and feeling a need to fulfill a void in someone's life. Heck, the concept of volunteering for someone/something is seen as a sentence to purgatory where just an hour or two would seem like an eternity. Everything and anything can be done by them but it would have to be followed by a reward of sorts. I can't imagine what lives these youngsters will live but from what I have seen I can only guess a life of solitude with a hand out waiting for something to be placed in it. Now before I get any comments about the entire generation I want to make sure that this opinion falls upon some millennials and not all.
I just read an article today that mentions Cedar Point (the best amusement park ever) has dedicated the 10th of September as a free day. Free day for? Free admission to first responders and the military. That right folks, Cedar Point has extended their appreciation for their patrons by allowing first responders, military and grandparents a free admission ticket on that day. Since Sept. 10th is National Grandparents Day they have included grandparents one free admission with a paid ticket or season pass holder. I think this gesture couldn't have come at a better time. With what we are facing in this nation something like this can and should be used as a means of keeping family and friends closer.
Well NFL lovers out there. It looks like Amazon Prime has signed a deal with the NFL Network to have all Thursday games streamed through A.Prime. So if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber you will have the added coverage of Thursday night games at your finger tips. I became an A.Prime subscriber this year in January. I have thus far seen some amazing movies as well as television series. At a one time cost of $99 for the year you can't really go wrong. I'm definitely looking forward to checking out some of the games online when the season starts.
