34 Years Of Life That Never Happened

Filed under: In The News — @ January 23, 2007

Dear friend,

This week I turned 34.

It’s hard to believe. How time flies. January 22, 1973 seems like so long ago. I’m the oldest in my family. It’s a pretty big family, but I’ll explain that later.

If you’re a baby boomer, you probably don’t think much of my generation–Generation X. But that’s because we’re a threat to you! My generation is changing the world! Just think of all that has happened in the world these past 30 years…

The end of Vietnam. Watergate. Jimmy Carter. Actually, I don’t remember much from the 70s, since I was just entering elementary school when Ronald Reagan became president.

I loved the 80s. That’s when I grew up, but I had no idea just how much the world was changing.

Then, the Berlin Wall fell. I’ll never forget that day in November 1989. I was 16 and on top of the world. I can remember my history teacher telling me that the world would never be the same. He was right.

Then, something even more dramatic developed. The Internet. If you want to understand me and my generation, then go online–MySpace, YouTube, and blogs are where you’ll see me hanging out.

When I was in college, a few of my friends saw it coming. We helped start a revolution online. And don’t believe it when they say the Internet bubble has burst. The only thing that has burst is the old way of doing business.

Now there are no boundaries for people like me. The sky is truly the limit! I got married three years ago to a beautiful and loving woman, and we’re expecting our first child in three months. A new generation begins…

Yes, life is good. Except for one problem.

You see, I wasn’t actually born on January 22, 1973. In fact, I wasn’t born at all. I never was given the chance to take even that first breath.
