The Crisis of Loneliness Among Young Americans

Recent studies have revealed some truly alarming trends among young Americans: one-third of undergraduates wrestle with some kind of mental health issue, more than one-third of young adults are now disaffiliated with religion, and according to one global health service company, the loneliest generation in America today are between 18-22 years old. Whereas previous generations might ask, "How should I live?" they are now more likely to ask, "Why should I live?" Where they used to talk about hope and meaning; now they grapple with hopelessness and meaninglessness. And while it may be too early to say for sure, it's almost certain that almost a year of quarantine and social distancing has only made matters worse. In other words, young Americans are facing a spiritual crisis of loneliness.
