How often has a group of people been born at the crossroads of history? 1985-1989 is one such rare period where Fate or the Universe or Accident combined to shape people who exist outside the standard timeline. Googling it shows the Challenger Explosion, Pan Am crash, Exxon-Valdez oil spill and countless many other destructive events. It also makes me feel slightly ashamed for not stopping to remember my 5th grade history lessons, or hunt for the ancient Encyclopedia Britannica my mom pressed on me.

Although unmarked in national calendars and textbooks, those 5 years balanced destruction with creation. So I guess you could say duality was carved into our nature from the start. Out of the decades that gave birth to Generation Y, 5 years is really a narrow window.  In such a short period of time, a global crossroads generation incubated alongside the collision of two worlds.
