WHO ARE THE BABY BOOMERS
Baby Boomers, made quite an appearance on the scene. Elvis, The Beatles, Woodstock, television, flashy cars, portable transistor radios, folk music and oh so many other things came along in our time. We were the most outstanding group of individual free thinkers. No other generation has quite the panache as the Baby Boomers, or so we tell ourselves.
The Baby Boomer generation starts with those born in 1946 and ends with those born in 1964. That eighteen year period may be the most transitional of all generations. Baby Boomers developed the right to BE whatever they wanted to be. The right to travel whatever path they decided was best for them. They even decided to wear the clothes they wanted to wear and not what society said they should wear.
Baby Boomers are a sensitive group of people. Some of them born closer to 1964 don’t like being “classified” as a Baby Boomer, which is now a generation of older people. Mathematically speaking, a person born in 1946 is now 69 years old. Some people seem old at 69 and some seem to be young. At the other end of the spectrum, a Baby Boomer born in 1964 is only 51 in 2015 and at the prime of their life. No wonder they don’t wish to be classified with those “older” people.
Baby Boomers have worked hard all their life and they want to be part of the scene they helped create. Not everyone worked in an office and used the Internet every day. Not everyone has been exposed to what is available in the world. Many people (including young people) are afraid of using the Internet because – the list of reasons could go on for many pages. People of all ages are shunning technology that could make their lives more pleasant. Regardless of age, no one wants to appear clueless about any given subject. The Internet provides a way for everyone to have instant information at their finger tips. We are hoping to make it less scary.
At Mom Pop Pow.com we hope to provide information that we know about and that people ask us about. We never want to be part of the crowd who says, “I’m too old for that.” Your support and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
