Entrepreneur Amanda Cavaleri writes down ideas from others who attended her brainstorming meeting Oct. 23, 2014 at Industry Workspace in Denver. Cavaleri is working with other like minded individuals to create something that will build a bond between millennials and elders to help connection the two generations from social to helping to enhance life.

Re: “Millennials are not so special,” Jan. 24 Mike Rosen column.
As the parent of two millennials, I’d like to take exception to Mike Rosen’s column. Rosen characterizes millennials as being “indoctrinated by liberal teachers and professors.” That is very unfair. I like to think that the development of my children’s social consciousness has been nurtured and guided as much by their liberal parents as by the very professional and hard-working teachers they have had through their formative years.
I’ve often used Rosen’s own columns as teaching aids. Rosen, I point out, illustrates the fact that the conservative ideology has no basis in reality, facts or logic. Consequently, conservative spokespersons such as Rosen are reduced to publishing angry rants which are supported only by stereotyping, name-calling and fantastic conspiracy theories, in place of evidence.
I’m very proud to report that, with Rosen’s help, my two children have grown up to be unassuming, self-reliant, hard-working, successful liberals, who understand the importance of voting.
