Proud?

Upon reading the above, I'm embarrassed for myself (born in 1965). Some generations can claim to have survived the Great Depression. Some can claim to have helped save the world from Nazism.

"We are the first who played video games" and "We traveled in cars without seat belts"? This is one of the saddest things I've ever read.
