Please describe a snowflake!



FROM:
The term "snowflake generation" was one of Collins English Dictionary's 2016 words of the year. Collins defines the term as "the young adults of the 2010s (born from 1980-1994), viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offence than previous generations".

After being in USAF during the Vietnam era I had reluctance to identify with the conflict since I never left Texas while I served. Since then I am proud to have supported those who were assigned to combat areas and now will identify. I am also in my 70's.

Wear the shirt and be proud to have supported such a great asset to the country.

I don't wear any clothing with logos or inscriptions imprinted on them. I don't wish to be a target of some deranged idiot nearby. Yes, I'm a cynic. [emoticon]

People who get offended by everything whether or not it has a direct affect on them and/or people who cannot handle a difference of opinion and melt down over it, henceforth "snowflake".


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Another question from a non veteran but one who supports the Military and is always trying to make up for it.
Do you get offended when I always "Thank You for Your Service" when it's clear you are a Vet?
Thanks for Your Service.

Have been a Veteran for 50 years now, have had various items of apparel with some type of military reference on it all these years. NEVER had a off-hand remark or comment made to me ever! Wear it proudly and if anyone asks or comments about it, that is your chance to explain your pride and support of you grandson-in-law. It is a free country for a reason you know.....

No I do not get offended.

Sometimes I get chocked up and don't know how to reply


And YOU and nothing to make up for.......
