It’s hard to believe it’s been three months already. When we launched Generation O back in May, President Obama had just completed his first 100 days in office, and we were excited to see what he would do next. So how has he measured up? In our final posts on Gen O (look for them throughout the day), we’ll be grading Obama’s performance on the issues that matter most to us. Obama’s term has barely begun, but it’s still useful to look back at the past few months and see how he’s lived up to his promises.
As we reflect on what Obama has done, we’ll also be thinking about how we’ve changed. Over the past three months, Gen O-ers have traveled across the country and around the world. We’ve been in and out of school, we’ve worked and volunteered in our communities, and, most importantly, we’ve tried to contribute to public discourse, not just watch passively. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading our posts as much as we enjoyed writing them. And we hope you’ll spend a few minutes today thinking about how much our government has tried to do since January—and what you’d like it to try next.
