    Enough complaints, be thankful

    The Day publishes way too many "woe is me" stories. See “Gen Z blues,” (June 24, Washington Post) about housing issues, credit card debt (no one forces them to use credit cards) and student debt that the young generation faces. Young people starting out in life have opportunities in the U.S. that are almost boundless compared to people in other parts of the world.

    Instead of complaining about student debt, they should rejoice they live in a country where great educational schools are available. Would they prefer to live in Guatemala where many drop out after sixth grade, because they can no longer afford to go on? How about the Sudan, Somalia, Ukraine? Previous generations faced the Great Depression and World War II with fewer complaints than the media portrays today. Instead of complaining, let's rejoice that we live in this country.
