One of the main ideas I’ve been tossing around is the notion that generations start and end with a MOMENT THAT CHANGES THE NATIONAL MOOD. Sorry for the all caps. Those moments also start the new turnings . 

Moments : 

End of world war 2 -> Boomers (we can win !)
JFK dead -> Gen X (Deep cynicism )
Morning in America -> Millennials (optimism )
9/11-> Zoomers (overly protected and coddled )
