Hi, all. How is everyone doing? I'm doing pretty good this afternoon. Started out with a terrible headache though. I read an article today about the welfare of the elderly in the us. Basically, a study found that there are more people over 65 now than ever and expected to increase, they're living better and healthier. It's good news but it said that not all people are in the same boat. Some of non-white ethnicities were not in very good health and were also in poverty. It breaks my heart to hear such things as elderly living in poverty having to take care of themselves. I think it's good that people are doing studies on this topic but the government needs to keep up with the changes to provide better health care.
