Here’s what an “okay boomer” has to say to young people and it may not be what you think I’ll say

My young co-worker OD’d to his death on Friday night. Might have been an accident, but at the very least, he was self-medicating. He wasn't the greatest at the job, but he was such a sweet guy, and I wish his world had been a better one.

That got me thinking about what I’d say to young people, given all the mistakes I’ve made in my 62 years. I know. I know. “Okay, boomer,” but what I’m going to say might not be what you think I’m going to say.
