"How do we change an entire culture? The same way we have always done it, with a movement. It’s time for us to raise our voices, to show that we are not only relevant but also have wisdom and creativity to share, regardless of the color of our hair. We need to change the language that stereotypes older adults. We need to fight the segregation that keeps us out of sight and makes us 'the other.'" -Alice Fisher via The New York Times
