Bernie isn't just for Millennials. We are GenX, Boomer and Silent generations. We are the seasoned ones and those who love and respect our experience and wisdom.
Several people have wondered why we use the word "silver" in our name instead of GenX or Boomers.
We love the word silver because it's a fresh new way to look at people who are older than millennials. Often the word "Boomer" is used in a derogatory way by younger people when talking about politics. They tend to wrongly assume we are all conservatives and we all voted for Reagan. The media wants everyone to believe that only Millennials support Bernie, we know that's wrong.
We also wanted a word that wasn't specific to one generation. We wanted our family to include GenXers, Baby Boomers and yes, even those from the Silent Generation.
The word "silver" also has a dual meaning which is a fun twist on the word. One of the definitions in the urban dictionary defines "silver" as:
"The name of someone who is characteristically hot and feisty. Silver is driven and unique in his/her creativity and personality. He/She makes a great girlfriend or boyfriend, but be careful, most likely you're not the only one after them."
Whatever your age or your hair color, we are so happy you are here!
