Title: "THANK YOU FOR CARING FOR THE ELDERLY!!!"
I thank you sincerely for all you are doing to help the elderly in America and all around the world.
These dear citizens deserve to live out their lives in dignity and happiness surrounded by their loved ones.
I can't say it better than this response that was posted in response to the petition to Stop Elder Abuse and Guardianship System Abuse: >>>>
*(Currently 506 Signatures - Care to become #507+???).
I was so touched by this that I wanted to share it with all my new friends.

We want the elder abuse stopped for the sake of those who once wiped our bottoms, taught us how to ride bikes, stayed up all night Christmas Eve to assemble all of the toys that we were expecting from Santa, helped us with our homework, and were just there for us--but, now, they're the ones who need caring for.
We also want the elder abuse stopped for those of us who remember days of catching fireflies on a summer night, getting our driver's licenses, turning the tassels on our mortarboards, falling in love, getting married, raising a family, and are now in our middle years--with the elder years of our lives waiting for us up the road a bit.
We want the elder abuse to stop for those teen and tween girls swooning over The Jonas Brothers the way that many of us did in response to The Beatles and those teen and tween boys crushing on Miley Cyrus; those little kids writing letters to Santa with all of their adorable spelling errors and backwards letters while broadly grinning with mouths that are missing baby teeth; those drooling, toothless babies grinning while carrying on conversations with nonsense syllables like Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba eeeeeeeee!
How quickly the years will pass for them, too--and what will be waiting for them when their sun is low in the western sky? We want elder abuse stopped when we think about those little lives showing up on sonograms and kicking their Mommies' tummies from the inside.
Their life is just beginning--but what will be waiting for them sixty, seventy, eighty years after their tiny, naked, squirming bodies slide out of the exit of the birth canal to begin this adventure called life?
I thank you again for all your help. I am new to care2 and struggling with learning how to use it.
I have started a group and will send an invite soon once I can get the web page fixed.
You are an awesome wonderful person and the world will be a better place because we and building the movement of "by the people for the people" that will drive us to a better way on a better day.
