Each generation has been shaped by the common experiences shared among the members of the generation. These experiences typically dwell around historical events, inventions and venues of entertainment. The builder generation is no different. They learned obedience, courage and discipline during the wars. The Great Depression taught them a respect for money and Charles Lindbergh taught them the world was not as big as it used to be.
