Wow, I am feeling a bit old learning about new american dolls that were not around when I was around 8 years old. I had two american girl dolls and read all the books. My interest in history began with those dolls and like Brieze mentioned, I also always rememberd the different girls' stories when I learned history in school.
I grew up in a very waldorf family and never had barbies but american girl dolls are very different and I learned a lot of important lessons from their stories.

One thing that did come to mind though, as I was reading the article, was the infuriating fact that there are education cuts being made in California. How do the older generations expect us to do great things in the world when they are cutting spending on education?! People need to be well educated, otherwise they will not be able to live up to thier fullest potential.

We could either be a dumb generation or a very smart and gifted generation. I think we are both and wil have to decide which half we belong in.

Alright millenials! lets go be Heros..im pretty exited about it..

I have just really enjoyed reading all of my fellow millenials comments and I can relate to most of your opinions. But overall I have always felt very very very strongly that we are here to make a change. So what if its not our fault that the world is a mess right now! I am not gonna sit around and complain about it. We have the ability, information, creativity and technology to do great things all we need is a larger dose of passion (as well as compassion), motivation and self-confidence.
There is a great deal of pessimism regarding our ability to create positive change however I think that there is just as much optimism if we just look in the right places. We need to start with ourselves if we want to make a change and not go around pointing fingers at everyone else, because all the hippocrisy really does need to stop eventually.
