Did you know the head of the boomers generation was born seconds past midnight on Jan. 1,1946? Kathleen Csey-Kirschling was born in Philadelphia with about 3.4 million babies more born that year. Many of them will turn 70 this year! Through the years much happened as well as national adventures, rewriting attitudes on race, gender,etc.,dictating musical tastes and changing just abut everything in the world they inherited. "What a long, strange trip it's been." to quote the Grateful Dead, one of their cultural icons.
The boomers will continue to change the country and as they are living longer and work longer than their predecessors and in the work force their colleagues will have to get used to energetic gray-haired coworkers.Surveys tell us those turning 70 this year, and over the next several years are much more inclined to stay on the job than previous generations.
For many turning 70 with all that energy will also lead to seeking purpose in their lives.Watch out they are still at it! Happy Birthday Boomers!
