You Have the Time…

… To Change the World

Boomer generation people are among the first in history to live long enough to not only retire but retire in good health.

“We’re going to see something we’ve never seen before—people in their 60s, 70s and 80s who want to continue working and remain connected.”*

Youth may be wasted on the young, but now you have the freedom of “retirement years” to accomplish those things you wanted to do when you were young but put aside to make a paycheck, have your children and take care of your family.

Please consider doing something you’ve put off doing. You have the time, the health, the knowledge and experience to do it now.

Let’s make our world a better place to live.

“The aging of America is not the crisis that is often portrayed in the media or even in scholarly papers,” says Richard Johnson, an economist and senior fellow at the Urban Institute, in Washington, D.C, who, along with a growing number of social scientists, is helping redefine what it means to be old. The rise in cases of age-related illnesses such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and dementia is a real and urgent problem. But it’s not the whole story. “Today’s seniors are healthier, better educated, and more productive than ever,” Johnson says. “The challenge we face is finding ways to harness their talents.”
