From the Author
Weve researched this book for over five years and received help from hundreds of Millennials. While none of us alone can possibly claim to represent the entire generation, we have tried to briefly present the attitudes and behaviors of our peers. Although just a sampler, this book will give you a good taste of where a majority of youth stands today, and where we are going tomorrow.
Our generation has no excuse not to be engaged and work for social change. We must not sit idly by and listen to the band play on as our nation sinks, unable to overcome partisan rhetoric and a public turned off to our failing democracy. We will not be passive participants in our nations politics; it is time for us to make ourselves be heard!
