The author, a millennial, reflects on the multiple crises that their generation has experienced and how they have learned to adapt and adjust with each one. They highlight the importance of journalists in providing information and guiding reactions during these crises. However, they also point out the current decimation of U.S. newsrooms, with major publications slashing their staff and impacting their ability to fulfill their crucial role in reporting the news. The author emphasizes the need to support and value journalism in order to navigate through future crises.
