WE ARE NOT SENIORS! They just graduated from high school! We were all sitting down for a family dinner and the question came up, "do you want to be considered a senior citizen?" Noooooo was the reaction! Our parents were Senior Citizens. We lived through decades of change with our lives entertwined and hands on!
We've been there from A to Z.
We are CEO'z! Not only are we Chief Executive Officers but we are... America's CEO'z...
AMERICA'S CITIZENS "ENERGIZED AND OPTIMIZED"
We are America's CEO'z.
*We watched that little black and white TV transmission turn into 60" full color screens. Thank you Disney, Motorola and all.
*As children we had to practice how to hide under our school desks in case we were bombed.
*We watched the bombing of Hiroshima.
*We watched Dwight D. Eisenhower end world war II.
*We watched the assassination of John F. Kennedy! The Cuban Missile Crisis prevented world war III.
*We watched the first man on the moon (okay, that's yet another subject).
*We watched our African American Citizens join the ranks of equality.
*Dwight D. Eisenhower ended the Korean War and continued The Cold War.
*We watched the African/American Civil Rights Movement.
*We watched the assassination of Martin Luther King.
*We watched our men and innocent families with children murdered in Vietnam and we still ask why?
*We watched the impeachment of our President of our United States. Yeah, he resigned. Bye Bye Dick. President Nixon kept us at the edge of our seats with Watergate!
*We watched our youth sample drugs in Woodstock. But, what great music!
*We watched one of our favorite actors, Ronald Reagan become President of our United States and finally end the Cold War.
*We watched the removal of the Berlin Wall.
*We watched the implementation of NAFTA, our North American Free Trade Agreement.
*We watched Clinton make a mess of his marriage and the country. Okay, that's my opinion...
*We watched the 2001 terrorist attacks and are still witnessing the aftermath.
*We watched President Bush deliver his State of the Union address on January 23, 2007. Off we went to war.
*We watched our son and many other young men and women leave for Iraq to defend our country.
*We are in the HERE and the NOW. We have been THERE and done THAT.
*We are America's newest CEO'z. We've been there from A to Z. We are Citizens Energized and Optimized! We have watched our country survive and flourish through many of its twists and turns. We are savvy to the WWWeb and its magic. We are strength within our government and are raising children to follow in our footsteps. We are the backbone and foundation of our USA. We have earned the right to be called CEO'z.
and Proud of it!
