"When Love Arrives"

As adults, Gen X and Baby Boomers especially, we wonder what is on the mind of the millennial generation? I say it's not all that different from things we thought about when we were their age: school, friends, enjoying the summer, and enjoying life. Career planning and social good make occasional appearances, but mostly, I think, they wonder about love. Will they find it? Will they do all they want to do before it changes their path forever? Will it matter?

Thanks to my millennial generation niece, I share this video with you today. "When Love Arrives," is a sample of what I think young adults think about more frequently than they admit. It's a poem about the expectations and realities of love written and performed by Sarah Kay and Phil Kay.

According to my niece, this poem is hopeful and wonderful in every way. This old-timer agrees that it is pretty cool. Enjoy.
