Baby Boomers: An emerging resource?

The world has become a time poor place. More mothers no longer stay at home, and both women and men often have busy careers. People in general just seem busy somehow. Schools struggle for volunteers for trips – many don’t rely on parent helpers as much as they did in years gone by – and there are less people around to regularly visit the sick or elderly and fill all those little gaps in our communities where simply care and time is needed. Could the aging baby boomers be a new and emerging resource to bless our communities in ways just such as this?
