Dear Ocala,

Jurassic Park author, Michael Crichton states, “If you don’t know history, then you don’t know anything. You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree.”

While dwelling in the past isn’t always the healthiest of approaches, understanding and learning from it are essential. Our large senior community offers us a unique opportunity to learn from the people who actually lived it.

This month, we focus on the 55-plus community and their contribution to our nation, community, and history. From civil rights activists to NASA employees, you will love learning more about the “older” generation.

You may note that this letter is my only contribution to this issue. It is bittersweet, but I am excited to introduce you to some new writers: Cierra Ross and Taylor Strickland.

An additional change includes a new department in the magazine called Access. This department will focus on the group of people who need accessibility and don’t always get it. Over the next few months, you’ll read stories from the deaf community, hard of hearing, blind, and more.

This new department does replace our From the Experts department. However, we know how much you enjoy Dr. Manal Fakhoury’s articles about leadership, and she has agreed to keep writing them for our blog. So, be sure to head to our website and subscribe to our e-newsletter if you don’t want to miss a thing!

As always, I hope you enjoy this issue. Be safe and have fun as we head into the busy holiday season.

Most Sincerely, Lisa Anderson
