in the makings.

Been fighting sickness all week and weekend. And the library is beckoning my name! Hello dead week. Kill me now ^_^

Here's some stuff I'm adding to the script to fill in the gaps of the previous draft.

"We have had no world wars, no drafts, better health care, more kids live longer and better lives, theres less crime, more education, more communication with TV, phones, computers, and technology, less physical labor, freedom to choose, and ability to move.

The baby boomers had a dream of freedom. And that’s what they gave us. What they didn’t give us, was what to do with that freedom. They didn’t tell us where to go. Who to be.

And “…when we are fiercely independent and self-sufficient, our disappointments loom large because we have nothing else to focus on.”

There’s confidence, there’s assertiveness, there’s entitlement. Yet even before 9/11 depression was up 10x higher than in the previous generations. we are also dealing wth the most anxiety and depression than any other generation before us. ."

I tried switching some stuff around at the beginning, but am not sure if it felt right.. but I'm adding a lot more found footage and trying to get it contextualized a bit more. Hopefully it won't seem to forced. Thus far I'm liking it, so we'll see how it goes!
