Social isolation doesn't only occur during youth and adolescence. A 95 year old man named Bill called his local radio station in the UK to talk about how lonely he was. He said, "Unfortunately, when you get old, people don't visit. That's life."
In response, the DJ and radio staff picked him up and had him over to the station for coffee and to chat. Let us use this story as not only a reminder of the kindness that exists in the world, but as a reminder that we can all do our part to help ease social isolation. It's as simple as a phone call, a coffee date, a nice, "Hello", or a quick lunch.
