Other than forever being called Coronials, Covidials, or Children of the Quarn, no.

They will actually be better off in some ways.  The economy will recover by the time they need it, there will be more working from home so less pollution/traffic, and we will be ready for any new pandemics.

There also won't be an orangutan in the White House.

But is it for those who are teens/early20s now or those conceived in lockdown?  I think it works better for the babies.

Yeah, that's not going to happen.  At least the less traffic/pollution part.  People will use the excuse that they are telecommuting some days to be willing to move even farther away from their office in the central city, plus fewer people are going to want to use public transit or even van pools, shifting those commuters to single driver cars, increasing traffic and pollution.

I think a once a century worldwide pandemic is a bigger deal than one time, localized terrorist attacks, even factoring in the resulting wars (because said wars took place outside the country).

Barely a day goes by where that event doesn't come to my mind somehow, whether it's something I hear, read, or remember.

Day-to-day life not so much, but it's not an exaggeration to say it permanently altered America's cultural and political trajectory.  The fallout waves are still rippling through our national pond today.

Please don't use the term "fallout" while Emperor Hirocheeto is at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave...
