Respectfully disagree. The projected boom fails to appreciate the arc of technology innovations that will:

(1) make driverless vehicles ubiquitous, (2) reward the most experienced anywhere in the world for doing more work for more companies (regardless of geography) and reduce opportunities for less than stellar performers, (3) continuously eliminate rote jobs in which creating and maintaining remarkable human connection/rapport are less than central, and more.

As a society, we keep failing to train the vast majority of the present generation of young people for the actual world they'll inherit; instead, we force them to invest countless hours preparing for careers and roles that will rarely exist.

With few exceptions, future careers will either require technology mastery or extraordinary people skills.

Higher percentages each year will become their own bosses and enjoy the inherent risks and rewards.

Many military families struggle to access help that could save lives. Your voice can make a difference.

For veteran and military families, relationship breakdown is among the most frequent contributors to homelessness and suicide. Help that could make a difference is often difficult to access.

“If you are in pain, I think I should be able to fix it. I don’t know how or can’t fix it, so I feel guilty and inadequate. I can’t stand feeling that way, so I withdraw and distance myself from you, maybe even blame you, for being in pain.”
