What is it About Millennials?

buddyholly

Is it any wonder that each generation shares philosophies and anthems? Elvis, The Beatles, Madonna, Nirvana, Beyoncé. The youth, being the most influential and vulnerable part of society are most affected by tragedies, triumphs, war and peace, pop-culture and technology.
