Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB
) February 20, 2007 -- Is the Millennial generation frozen by the problems they see all around them? John Mayer's 2007 Grammy award-winning song, Waiting on the World to Change, sends the message that today's teens and twenty-something's are unresponsive to society's social problems. Mayer's thought-provoking lyrics will be the key discussion point when Debra Berg, host of The Power of One: What's Your Mission? radio show interviews David Stillman, co-author of the book When Generations Collide. This show will air on the VoiceAmerica Network (http://www.voice.voiceamerica.com
) Wednesday, February 21 at 1 PM/PST, 4 PM/ET.
Berg will query Stillman on his views about whether the younger generation is overwhelmed by or just lacks interest in social causes. She is hoping he'll elaborate more on why Gen Xers are "skeptics of institutions" and Millennials are "seeking balance." Both generations have lived through events like Columbine, 9/11, big natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, as well as the proliferation of gangs and drugs. "If Mayer is reading his peers correctly, I'm concerned as to how willing they'll be to take on America's tougher issues when they're in charge of the country," Berg remarked. She has encouraged show listeners to post their thoughts about Mayer's lyrics on her blog, http://yourpowermission.blogspot.com.

Stillman, who is a sought-after speaker by major employers, holds to the theory that each generation has a characteristic style and response to the world around them. Since 1995, Berg, the author of The Power of One: The Unsung Everyday Heroes Rescuing America's Cities, has interviewed over 150 Americans ages twelve to eighty who are grassroots inventors of solutions to major social problems. She believes there is a New Civic America emerging that crosses political parties, economic classes, nationalities, and generations. "I'm very curious to know if Stillman has modified his definitions for Millennial and Gen Xers since his book was published five years ago," Berg added.
