I see it as, try to look at the moods.  The moods always make clearer the location in a bracket.  I cannot help looking at the MSD shooting and what happened after.  Compare to Columbine, same event.  The Hero exists, I don't know what bracket this is tho.  The MSD people said "how dare anyone kill these children?!"  While, with Columbine, it was a rancid, confused cult of The Matrix boys/men dressing up as Hollywood idols killing each other.  I don't feel like anyone really cared about the victims.  Clear shift from X to Mill.

So, those people are 20s now... they may even be cusp Artists.  Demanding Green New Deal, don't care who does it so long as it gets done.  Current president is their worst nightmare and definitely the scenario of a far-in 4th Turning (I think) when the text describes what happens right at the Turning..... the red-faced Boomers descend into madness and their leader makes one last half-cocked move to destroy Earth while quickly handing the mess over to the X ascendent with the Millennials waiting eagerly to move forward.


Yes. The Columbine event involved 1981 cohorts, the very beginning of millennials.  You compare the mood of the time with the MSD event, which involved 2000 cohorts, suggesting the latter, but not the former would be millennials.

S&H noted things like Scouting, which became popular in the 1910's (the Troop I was in started c 1918). So we are talking about kids born in the first decade of the 20th century being involved.  And then there was the great divider of WW I, those too young to have fought in the that war were of a different generation than those (Lost) who did fight.  From this they cam up with their 1901 divider.

Your school shooting indicator suggests a GenX/Millie divider closer to 2000 and 1981. It is consistent with my thesis.
