Generation What?

by Akilah Monifa

I thought my kids were millennials, it turns out that I am out of touch.

I am a Baby Boomer, born in 1957.  The span is from 1946 – 1964.  My mother and I were the same generation.  I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t remember John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

My dad’s generation and anyone born before 1945 is called the traditionalists or Silent Generation.

Gen X spans from 1965 -1976.

Millenials also known as Gen Y include those born from 1977 to 1995.

And my teens are the iGen, GenZ or Centennials, born 1996 or later.

Peace, love, gratitude, compassion and blessings.
