Have you heard of the Invisible Generation? It is made up of citizens over 70 years of age. They are alive, active, alert, and, oh yes, they possess more wisdom than you could imagine. Have you seen 80- and 90-year-olds doing Zumba, Tai Chi, yoga, and ballet? Have you seen two 93-year-olds dancing the Lindy at a New Year’s Eve party? How about Russian Women’s Night?
All this and much more are regular activities at Weinberg Village, an independent living community in Owings Mills. There are untold stories here. Teachers, engineers, counselors, Holocaust survivors, artists and even someone who published a children’s book. There are many, many stories to be told. Why not share them with your readers?
While a superb article in the Jewish Times highlighted the unique ballet class (“Benefits of Ballet,” Feb. 20), there are many more activities that showcase the unseen and unknown talents of our senior population. These are not people to be shunted aside by Generation X or the millennials or whatever you want to call the under 60 crowd. Age is just a number.
We’re alive and well … and we rock!
