In our opinion: 'Coming to our Census' series takes needed, critical look at issues posed by Utah's changing demographics
If what we bequeath socially and culturally to the next generation were to come from a materialist popular culture that glorifies individualism, instant gratification and debt, then regardless of ethnicity or race, the next generation would face severe challenges. But if instead we were to bequeath vibrant families, congregations, schools and civic institutions — institutions that value community, responsibility and thrift — then we would help to re-establish the foundations for lasting prosperity.
Every person deserves the freedom to prosper. As you explore in our reporting what Utah will look like in the next quarter century, carefully consider the legacy you are creating for a rising generation that yearns for little more than the pursuit of genuine happiness. It is through a culture of responsibility, established by our collective choices, that Utah will meet the challenges of its changing demographics.
