Instead of being called the Millennial Generation, today’s youth could instead own the moniker Sound Bite Generation.  

Think of how much information they receive in small bursts:
> the National Park Trading Cards that I wrote about yesterday (Blog #1255)
> Twitter
> Texts
> Q&A format of “articles” in magazines that are more bullet points instead of paragraphs
> Instagram, Pintrest, sites with visuals instead of words
> Infographics instead of explanations
> Video games instead of books
> Television shows (with commercials removed) instead of movies

We could lament how the shortened attention span has made it challenging for young people to sit through classes, speakers, church services and more…

…or we can acknowledge it and deliver our messages accordingly.  Let “drone” be something that flies in the sky, not something that you do.
