Defining Moments

Wow. I found this on my friends blog today and it really hit home. How true is this?

Susan Gregory Thomas:

Every generation has its life-defining moments. If you want to find out what it was for a member of the Greatest Generation, you ask, "Where were you on D-Day?" For babyboomers, the questions are "Where were you when Kennedy was shot?" or "What were you doing when Nixon resigned?"

For most of my generation--Generation X, born between 1965 and 1980--there is only one question: "When did your parents get divorced?"
