On the third day Im going to start rocking just a little bit. Third, there is a vision of the retirement years that might be called disengagement, or the contemplative model. If young and middle adulthood are times to build a career, invest in family life and exercise leadership in the community all responsibilities that ask us to apply our energies to the outer world now, older adulthood is the time to disengage from some of those outward involvements and let our energies enrich the inner world, the spiritual life. Leaving my work life behind, letting others take responsibility for institutions I care about. I find time now to cultivate inner qualities such as a quiet mind and a deeper appreciation of nature. I can turn to more private, contemplative habits such as reading, writing reflective memoirs or walking meditation. Some call this a focus on being rather than doing. Fourth, some retirees are moved by gratitude or other reasons to see their retirement vocation as giving back. They look for ways that seem right for them to be of service to their families or to the community. Its not so much a need to be busy and active as it is a need to be useful. A friend has found great meaning in mentoring a young man through adolescent years and now the young man is prepared to launch a promising career in the arts, thanks in large part to the older mans patient, time-intensive mentoring. Retired persons intent on giving back find useful, creative ways to serve, shaped by their talents and passions as well as their vision. Some retirees will see themselves in one or another of these types.

For those individuals who choose to target our heroes, the message formalized in this legislative act should be clear and the consequences severe, Col.
