AARP Video: The Lost Generation Views Aging

The Lost Generation Turns Things Around With a View on Aging

The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) held a contest in 2007 called "U@50". They asked for videos to be submitted by people between the ages of 18-30 on the subject of what they expect their lives to be like at the age of 50.

The video below, entitled "Lost Generation" didn't win the contest, but it has been viewed more than 11 million times on YouTube.  I watched it myself and I can see why.  It cleverly shares a poem that paints a pretty bleak picture of the the future for this "lost generation" but then the lines are read in reverse order and the meaning is totally flipped around. It cleverly delivers a message of hope.

I think that the home care community will be inspired by this video just as I was.  It really is a terrific message so please share this video with others. Also - it's really short!
