I love this story: French President Emmanuel Macron gave a lecture to a kid who tried to punk him at a WWII commemoration ceremony. Macron ripped into the kid for singing a Socialist anthem and for trying to treat him (the President) like an equal.
Macron is one of the few Gen Xers who are leaders truly on the global stage. It's nice to see someone of my generation stand up for some basic decency and respect. It gives me a little hope for the future.
