Doc Holliday I’ve been trying to find a quote and I couldn’t remember who said it. It was from some post where you were talking about all the crap Millennials get thrown their way and I wanted to post it.

Anyway I still can’t find it ( it wasn’t a noted quote like some of her other stuff; I’d just read an interview she gave and she told the story of a girl asking what she should try to change about her generation.) It was better in story form but here it is--the gist.

And I like it.

Generally speaking, your generation is my favorite so far. I feel like you guys are the most open-minded, the least hateful, the least racist, the most compassionate generation that we have yet seen. People who have been raised to not bully each other. I mean there’s the criticism that perhaps you’ve been coddled, but I think I would much prefer to live in a world with people who have been coddled than people who have been abused. I believe people who have been raised carefully turn out to be careful people.

Elizabeth Gilbert, on The Millennial Generation

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
