Showing much love to our senior adults

Growing older doesn't always have to equate to Alzheimer's or Dementia, or thinking you can't be just as active in your senior years as you were at a much younger age. Case in point, look at the kudos comedianne/actress Betty White is STILL receiving after her hosting gig on Saturday Night Live! Who knew she still had those comedic chops in full gear since her role as Rose Nyland on one of my favorite shows...The Golden Girls...the senior years truly have been golden for Ms. White...who stepped up to the plate to host SNL after a widespread FaceBook campaign was initiated....and now our hearts are also filled with sadness of the recent passing of the lengendary singer/actress/activist Lena Horne, who was so much more that just a beautiful face! Her talent and her determination to represent her race when a country saw it as the 'norm' to hate because of a different race. Her later years also welcomed a new generation of fans where both grandparent and grandchild could watch Lena on such t.v. shows as Sesame Street and The Cosby Show! An entertainment pioneer in his own right, Quincy Jones, who was a dear friend of Lena's for more than 50 years, said it best, "There will NEVER be another like Lena Horne and I will miss her deeply." We all will miss you classy Lena...and Betty, you continue to bring out the beauty of your comedic timing...indeed showing much love to our senior adults- you're as active in mind, body, and spirit as you can allow yourself to be....

Thank you so much for giving our seniors a shout-out. We don't do that enough in America. Maybe that's why we have so many social ills today.
