Older Americans Month 2016: "Blaze A Trail"

Older adults are a growing and increasingly vital part of our country. The contributions they make to our communities are varied, deeply rooted, and include influential roles in the nation’s economy, politics, and the arts. From 69-year-old NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, Jr. to 84-year-old actress Rita Moreno to 83-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who took her seat as a Supreme Court Justice at age 60, older adults are blazing trails in all aspects of American life.
In 1963, led by the Administration for Community Living, the annual observance of Older Americans Month (OAM) offers the opportunity to learn about, support, and celebrate our nation’s older citizens. This year’s theme, “Blaze a Trail,” emphasizes the ways older adults are reinventing themselves through new work and new passions, engaging their communities, and blazing a trail of positive impact on the lives of people of all ages.

Meet Trailblazers

To celebrate Older Americans Month, The Administration for Community Living asked you to share stories about how you or an older adult you know is blazing a trail—giving back, starting anew, and redefining aging. Here are just a few of the many wonderful stories we received from around the nation. Thanks to all the trailblazers who took the time to share their stories!
