older generations, mainly boomers, love to criticize younger generations, mainly millennials, about everyone getting a trophy. here’s what boomers forget - they were the ones giving out the trophies. it was their creation. do you think the 7 year olds on a soccer team drove to the store and got trophies? the interesting part is that older generations lamenting about younger generations has happened throughout human history - https://gen.medium.com/why-older-people-have-always-trashed-young-people-8f918529009a so at the very least the boomers can be applauded for keeping the tradition going.
