But thats because she considers herself and the members of her generation as ReZoomers, not boomers. As she puts it, I admit getting my AARP card ruined my day, but I honestly have never felt better or more effective.
ONeill figures others in her age bracket feel the same way, which is why shes signed on as the spokeswoman for ReZoom.com, a website dedicated to the generation that never grows old.
She figures boomers have gotten somewhat of a bum rap from other age groups and says the website is one way of going from being selfish to selfless, and turning success to significance.
Although the children of the 60s are becoming the grandparents of the 21st century, ONeill says boomers better understand how it feels to be young that previous generations of oldsters.
