Are we being too sensitive?

We are in the 21st century and it is 2018. Yes, that is pretty obvious but it just shows how far we have come. It is like a new era where everyone wants their opinion to be heard, young and old included. If you are among the young folks like I, it is pretty cool for our voices to be heard and acknowledged.
