I suppose every generation can say this for one reason or another, but this is a very exciting time to live on planet earth! I remember when my kids were younger. I was fascinated at the relationships they were able to build with their classmates via IM or chat rooms that simply did not happen face to face. IMHO, it created a safe space to self-express which then grew into in-person relationships. The way young adults relate with one another so freely now (from my observations) is likely related to that wonderful technology that allowed them to experiment at a distance.
