A new survey by the American Psychiatric Association is showing that a third of Americans are saying this pandemic is seriously affecting their mental health and fifty percent say they are anxious about catching COVID-19. Today's guest is calling senior saints to see themselves not as victims but ambassadors of hope during this pandemic. Bruce Bruinsma from Retirement Reformation says that with age comes perspective and experience that can calm fears and be a positive voice in the lives of their children and grandchildren. He is calling on all elders to not shrink back, but share your wisdom to help others keep calm and carry on.
