Category: Keeping Up With Gen Y
August 31, 2011 | BY Tamara Bell
This September 11 marks the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that brought down the World Trade Center, wreaked the Pentagon, and forever changed our lives. But how have the 9/11 attacks continued to shape our society and its youngest members?
Dr. Sally Karioth, professor of nursing and certified traumatologist at Florida State University, joins Keeping Up with Gen Y to talk about how older generations can learn a thing or two from Generation Y, who have adjusted much better to the changes brought by 9/11. She also discusses how young people, with their broader worldview, can lend a hand to help the United States become a better global neighbor.
