A marginally troubling Slate article (for some of us . . .) offers the following infrequently remembered historical observation:
“As it turns out, many Founding Fathers were younger than 40 years old in 1776, with several qualifying asÂ Founding TeenagersÂ orÂ Twenty-somethings. And though the average age of the signers of the Declaration of Independence was 44, more than a dozen of them were 35 or younger.”
Feeling better about yourself yet? On the flip-side, those guys probably weren’t Tesla driving, super-model dating, high-rolling, former Navy SEAL rock stars either . . . So, as long as that brief description pretty muchÂ sums upÂ where you’re at in life, it’s all good. Nothing to worry about. Carry on.
After all, not that many of them even became President!
