How will we shape the Longevity Revolution? I have the sense that if we don’t use this gift of time to open up new possibilities, we may go into a long, anxious crouch. If we are not the change agents of aging, we’ll be the change resisters. Indeed, if we don’t feel needed and engaged as problem-solvers, we may well be part of a growing me-first senior politics. This is a moment to redefine aging, how we see ourselves and our country.
