"The Wimpiest Generation"

Tongue Tied has a weekly column on FoxNews.com, where they publish most of their posts from their blog over the last week. At the end, a number of letters are featured. One in particular this week stood out.

Amaury C. in San Antonio writes:

I am an avid reader of your column, but I cannot believe what this country is becoming. I moved from Europe 15 years ago, and I am appalled by how soft and selfish people have become. No wonder the Chinese and Indians are going to be the next global leaders. We are doing a complete disservice to our children by raising them completely unprepared for the challenges of the next century. They should be called the "Wimpiest Generation".

Amen Amaury. Sadly, most of my generation will not be ready for the next few years.
