Keep moving, Mary!
Re Mary Carey’s column “Older, looser, wiser” (DN, http://nando.com/25f)
It's all in what you want. My gynecologist became a bodybuilder saying, “I don't do 50 very well” and she has no back fat to prove it!
Exercise, movement really, is the key. Arthritis hit me before 40, eyesight started changing at 25, thankfully knees didn't start acting up until 60. I still go to concerts, even heavy metal ones. I never avoid loud places and I adore hanging out with eccentric folks and circus arts performers.
All of this keeps you young. You just have to keep moving!

The members of the Holocaust Speakers Bureau (HSB) read with interest Dr. John Wurzelmann’s column, “Gift of the Wooden Spoon,” published in Sunday’s issue (DN, nando.com/20z). Dr. Wurzelmann’s wrote about his father who survived the Holocaust.
Our organization’s mission is to bring such stories to our local schools and organizations. Our speakers have included survivors of Auschwitz, the kindertransport, hidden children and WWII liberators. We are currently looking for other individuals who are willing to tell their stories of survival, whether it is about the Holocaust or other genocides, as well as for “2Gs,” the second-generation narrators, such as Dr. Wurzelmann.
Please contact us if you know of people willing to share their histories with our area’s young people at 919-933-9089 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Holocaustspeakersbureau.org.
