When I am 80, I imagine family will be important to me. Perhaps I will have a partner by then. Perhaps not. Either way, I will have nieces and nephews. Of that, I am sure. When I am 80, they will be grown, and maybe even have children of their own. I will love them too.
When I am 80, I hope to be involved with politics and be working to making a difference in this world. By then, I hope, gay marriage will be legal. I am sure there will be lots of more things that need working on. I hope when I am 80, I am still working to making things better, not backwards. Older people seem to always be more conservative than the younger generations. I hope I remain liberal.
When I am 80, I hope to be financially secure. I want to be able to travel if I want. I want to not have to worry about making it month to month. If I want to do something, I want to be able to do it.
I hope to still be involved with children. Perhaps I won't be working anymore, but I'd like to be one of those cute 80 year olds that volunteer reading to children, or doing something special with them.
Scratch that. By time I'm 80, I hope there is a cure for MS and I don't have it anymore. I can just tell people stories about how horrible it was when it was around.
