My old friend Jim Donovan wrote a book titled, DON'T LET AN OLD PERSON MOVE INTO YOUR BODY. It's an idea I've told to a lot of people.
Just one or two hundred years ago, let alone 2000 years ago, people in their 40s and 50s were already old.

My Birthday is today, June 29th. It's a big one. I turn seventy. It's an age where you can't really deny you're old, even if you fight letting that old person move into your body. I fight it with a healthy diet and a lot of exercise. Sadly, I see a lot of people my age who let that person moved into their body.
The thing is, even though I often pass for being in my fifties, that turning 70 is also a head thing. For most people of a younger age. seventy is old fart territory. I'm hoping you can help to cast some positive light today with some financial support.
OpEdNews is facing a financial crisis. We've weathered so much of this time of pandemic, but right now, things have gotten really tight. We have bills due on July first and July 11th that right now, we can't meet.
What does OpEdNews mean to you? I've made many dear friends, had great conversations, worked to help activists and organizations, supported so many justice causes, and so have so many of you.
OpEdNews brings much needed progressive perspectives to the table, and I am dedicated to offering the vehicle for this important point of view. That's why I have kept it open with no paywalls since Feb. 2003, unlike other sources.
We must also remember all the volunteer support from Managing Editors, Editors and members. These volunteers show how much they value OpEdNews' position in the news arena by their selfless contributions of time and expertise, all of which contribute to making OpedNews the vibrant progressive news source that it is.
We need people to purchase, extend or upgrade their premium memberships and we need donations. We can also offer ad purchase options.
This is urgent. I hate sending out missives like this and try not to do it too often, but we do have a pressing need.
What's the value of OpEdNews in your life? A couple of cups of coffee per week? A couple of gallons of gas?
Please consider making a tax deductible donationto help OpEdNews survive and even thrive, and/or sign up for a premium membership. And if you are not in a position to contribute at this time, please do not feel bad, we are still very grateful to have you in the fold as we move forward, bringing the Progressive vision into the forefront.

PS. We'd love to be able to feel a stable ground beneath our feet, and focus more on bringing Progressive perspectives and a little less on the nuts and bolts of day to day expenses. Every year, I deeply appreciate the donations and memberships of our readers, and the dedication that these contributions represent. AND REMEMBER. THESE DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
These are tough times, we know. But we also believe that the louder the Progressive voice, the sooner we will all move into more comfortable, just times.
and PPS, it would be great if you join our weekly OEN Zoom session on Saturday nights from 7-8:30 PM, which we've been doing since May. Just reply to this email with OEN Zoom in the subject heading and I'll send you the link.
