BABY BOOMERS - WE'RE JUST THAT COOL
Isn't this pretty amazing? We are a force to be reckoned with. Our numbers are growing. By 2050, 83.7 million Americans will be 65 or older, compared with 43.1 million in 2012, the report said. Fewer than 10 percent were older than 65 in 1970.
By the time we reach this 65+ status, we have the wisdom of our age and the strength of our numbers. This is SO much we can accomplish.
Each of us should have a passion for something. Reading to children, rocking babies, volunteering in our community, running for City Council, whatever! Giving back to our local neighborhood.
I was really lucky to be able to volunteer at an earlier age. Working with Kate's teachers and classmates, at our Adult Community Center (organizing volunteers), on the Board of our Meals on Wheels. Now I have the Village movement. And the grandchildren. My perfect combination of young and old. Our past and our future. Yep, I've slowed down a bit. But loving it just the same!
What things do you do?
