“A Year to Serve”

By Marc T. Little, The Prodigal Republican

Generation Y-ers or Millennials are those born between 1977 and 1994. Often, they are referred to as the “selfish generation” and they make up approximately 25 percent of the U.S. population. Some would even say their selfishness pervades society, though like it or not they are the next generation of influencers and leaders.

Stanton Smith, author of “Decoding Generational Differences,” says with high expectation of others, “their attitudes can be characterized by a decrease in career ambition and more focus on personal pursuits.” Generation-Y kids seem to live their lives with one question in mind: “How can others serve me?” […]

“New Year’s Resolution or Gimmick?”

By Gladys Quin

It’s that time of year again when every social media outlet is preaching the importance of the proverbial New Year’s Resolution. Together their successful at one thing, giving the false impression that change must start on January 1st in order for each of us to have a better year. However, I question the importance society has placed on January 1st. Think about it, how is it that the roll of a new year single handedly has the power to push ”starting over” in full effect?
