As a one born in October of 1983, I'm often challenged to define THE moment that separates us from GenX. I've been using the Challenger explosion as a touch point: if you remember the implications of what it meant, then GenX you are. If not, you're likely Millennial. For example, I remember my grandmother telling me the spacemen died, but I remember more details about the couch I was sitting on than the incident itself. Given the implications of early childhood development, would this seem to past muster?
