Swickard: Column - Dreams of generations in a new century

Commentary by Michael Swickard, Ph.D. - Most people in America today cannot remember where they were when the dreams died. This includes me. What dreams? Over the last few decades America has not had dynamic proactive dreams for young people to follow. I know I am painting with a broad brush and exceptions can be found. However, from my time in school to now we have gone from a country focused on achievement to one that is most concerned with getting more than they give. Only chumps give more than they get. As a generation this group of kids does not think about going to the moon. Our young people today do not seem to represent any dream. With the retirement of the Space Shuttles and nothing really on the horizon in space we are not giving our young any dreams to lift them up. So very sad. Read column
