There has been so much written about Boomers. Literally the camera’s eye and the microphone have been turned on since the day the first Boomer was born. (That honor goes to Kathleen Casey-Kirschling, born in Philly, now in NJ.) Click For Her Story.
Except, however, for piecemeal accounts, the Boomer generation’s story has yet to be told in their own words. Think James Agee’s Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, which documented the Great Depression. Think Studs Terkel’s painstaking interview chronicles, such as Working. Think of the Brokaw TV mash-up The Greatest Generation.
Now in the digital age, here is an opportunity for Boomers to tell their stories as they see them. These pages are not meant to be an ode to just the good times. As Bob Marley sings: Good friends we’ve had and good friends we’ve lost.
