Crisis Aftermath Plays Havoc with PR’s Youngest Players

One of this year's early hot sellers was a book about the "quarter-life crisis," written by two women in their 20s who maintained that life was tougher than it looked for Gen
Xers. That crisis now seems irrelevant and superficial compared to the real thing going on among twenty-somethings in New York and Washington, DC in the wake of September 11. The
unparalleled heroism of rescue workers, airline passengers and Americans in uniform have jarred some of the profession's youngest pros, who are now struggling to find the value in
their own career paths.
