Today is the annual International Day of Older People. Yes! Why not? Let us proudly claim our (older) age.
How can we give positive witness to this stage of life?

Here’s my idea:
- Forget living out our middle-age fantasies expressed in Jenny Joseph’s “Warning” (the humorously irreverent poem that starts “When I am an old woman I shall wear purple”). Let us act dignified in public. (I fear we already get bad enough raps without spitting, drinking brandy, and pressing alarm bells…) What do you think??
Thank you! If we don’t project a positive image of “Older People,” who will?
