Millennials Rebuilding America
A Manifesto for the Future

IV. Identity

Read the full manifesto, including previous chapters, here

Don’t be shocked
when your hist’ry book mentions me
I will lay down my life if it sets us free
Eventually, you’ll see my ascendancy
And I am not throwing away my shot!

I am not throwing away my shot!
I am not throwing away my shot!
Hey yo, I’m just like my country
I’m young, scrappy and hungry
And I’m not throwing away my shot!

It’s time to take a shot!

-Alexander Hamilton (in Hamilton), Hero Generation

What makes a generation’s identity? A generation’s destiny? Who Are We American Millennials?

Let’s start with how our generation started:

The most educated generation in history.
The most diverse generation in history.
The largest generation in history.
