Time to Join AARP

Almost 2 years ago I turned 50 years old. I wasn't exactly thrilled about reaching that crossroad in life. It didn't help my mood when on my birthday I received a membership application for AARP. I thought, I'm eligible for senior citizen discounts now? (groans)

Well in my desire to hang on to my "youth" a little longer I avoided joining that esteemed organization. Until now.

It has been all over the news how AARP is losing members because of their support for Health Care Reform. Why are they supporting it? Because they are one advocacy group that actually works for its members not corporate interests. They know that Health Care Reform helps seniors. They know the facts, not the lies being spread.

Well I have gained a great deal of respect for this organization this last month and therefore I am now a proud member.

I urge any of the rest of you that are avoiding acknowledging 50, to go to AARP.ORG and sign up today. Don't hesitate to tell them why.

Thanks for reminding me Joe.

My membership ran out in July. I had ignored the renewal reminders and was going to let my membership lapse until I saw their position on health care and how they were losing members.

That was enough to get me to sign up for another year.
