Coast to Coast on Two Wheels

Posted: July 7, 2019 in Uncategorized

Today we ran into a group of 29 young adults bicycling from Baltimore to San Francisco accompanied by a chase van with water, food and repair parts.  They were raising funds for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. We spent some time talking with some of them. They are some of the most exiting, passionate, committed young adults I’ve ever met. They come from everywhere across America. And they give selflessly to support what they consider important.

My takeaway today: I think we mischaracterize Millennials. They may not view the world through the same glasses we wear, or view the world of work the same, or live our their spirituality with the same forms, but they are willing and wanting to live honest lives of purpose and love. I met them on the road today and was filled with admiration. And hope.

Let’s let them grow, serve and lead in their own ways. They may have the answers to the thorny challenges facing us, be willing to name it and do it differently. And just in time.
