Israel: My Favorite Baby Boomer
Israel is an archetypal baby boomer. Not just because she was born at the right time, just after the Second World War, at a time of hardship but hope for the future. Although times were difficult and money was very tight at the time of her birth, there was a general mood of optimism, and Israel herself never lost her conviction that change is always possible. ...
In classic baby boomer style, Israel has always been individualistic and idealistic, but with a strong sense of communal responsibility and commitment to her friends. Whenever she sees someone in a tight spot, she always stretches out her hand to help. Israel is part of the generation that brought sweeping social changes, as she advanced women’s rights in her neighborhood and invested heavily in environmental concerns.
For Israel and her fellow baby boomers, the Sixties was the decade that they came-of-age. It was in the Sixties that she really struck out on her own and found her groove. Although those around her tried to crush her and remake her in their mold, she held her own against them and emerged triumphant, and unrepentant about breaking her own path in life.
