     There are so many inspiring people around today. Retirement age may be 65 but many are still working at their professions even part time. I do not know that retirement age should be raised because of this, but the point is many seniors are still living vibrant lives.
      I have an older relative who recently passed away at the age of 84. He was a lawyer and still worked almost until the end.
       Even among  those who are not working , many older adults do not live in nursing homes and are living independent , vibrant lives. I suppose that a big fear can be getting older and being debilitated. Unfortunately some people do, but not everyone does. It is nice to be able to appreciate the lives of those who are still vibrant contributors to society. One can always learn so much by speaking to them.

The danger is not retiring because you have no life other than your job.
