A few months ago I referenced an article by Nick Gillespie about how “house broken” the millennial generation is. In the article Gillespie laments that there are few or no signs of rebellion in today’s youth. He then goes on to list some major issues looming in the future that Millennials will have to deal with and wonders if they will have the wherewithal to handle it. On a similar note, I recently came across this piece titled “Getting Tough with Yourself” by Marcus Brotherton. The author discusses how during trials it is often easy to feel entitled to a break. He then relates a story from WWII about a young PFC Sid Phillips, which I have summarized in the following quote.
