  1. This story about the 2016 Influencer in Aging, Ashley Applewhite, made me think about aging a little differently. She mentions the baby boomers and the fact that they are currently the healthiest, best educated and most fortunate generation in history but are denying getting old. Ashley wants people to start to reflect on their own aging and face that it is a natural part of life, not a disease. Everyone needs to be on board with this thought process and begin to think about the revolution of aging with pride instead of aging with shame. I like the thought process of starting to teach young kids about seeing themselves when they get old instead of waiting until we are already old. I plan on reading “This Chair Rocks” after reading this blog.
