I don’t need to remind you of how devastating the fires in Fort McMurray have been for the residents, many of them young families who have moved from elsewhere for work. It could have been you or me.  Here’s a link to the Canadian Red Cross to make it easy to donate: https://donate.redcross.ca/ea-action/action?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Appeal%20-%20Alberta%20Fires%202016&utm_term=%2Bcanadian%20%2Bred%20%2Bcross%20%2Bfort%20%2Bmcmurray&utm_content=Fort%20McMurray%20Fires&ea.client.id=1951&ea.campaign.id=50639

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends. Let's rock n' roll! If you would like to be notified whenever I publish a new posting, click on the little blue box in the lower right of your screen that says +Follow→ Lynda Davis
