“The TIME 100, always a reflection of its moment, looks quite different than in the past,” notes TIME Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal, citing as one example the record 45 people on this year’s list who are under 40. “Influence increasingly knows no single zip code and no minimum age,” he adds, “and a common theme in the tributes is how much we can learn from the young.”

Still, Felsenthal notes, “The elder-as-teacher remains a powerful theme… Seeing success in someone who looks like you, thinks like you, grew up like you can change the course of a life.” https://ti.me/2EZZIS4
