Defining Moments of the Generations
Here’s a link to some info about defining moments of the different generations. While I don’t put much credence into generational psychology as a way to label an entire generation as “this” or “that” they still do a pretty good job of actually classifying the buckets of years where people were born and therefore the events that may help to define a childhood, etc.
These common events can help serve as connectors for us - shared experiences. Where were you when 9/11 happened? When the Challenger exploded? When JFK was shot? All of these are good examples of how we can connect with each other and perhaps understand a little more about how people were impacted by some of these cultural events.
