- May 2001
The joys of Spring are upon us: the comfortable 
weather, the beauty and reassurance of the new flowers,
the warm sun on your face, and of course, the 
anticipation of LOVE that always blooms in 
Springtime.  

We had fun on April Fool's Day and celebrated 
Earth Day on April 22. 
The end of May will bring Memorial Day - the day 
we honor the valiant men and women who fought for 
our country.  Mother's Day is right around
the corner on May the 13th.  

We, at BoomersInt.org and BoomersInt.com wish you 
the best that Spring and the coming year has to offer.
Mostly, we wish you LOVE, PEACE and HAPPINESS.

SECTION TWO - Tax day
A survey and an interview

Jeri Maier was interviewed by James Shemberi, 
the editor of  the New York Times for 
his Sunday's Op/Ed column.

Boomers International members also participated in
a survey for the New York Times. The results were
predictable, as most (95%) of us are tired of paying
 high taxes and for Social 
Security that may or may not be there when we need it.
What about the Gen-yers, the Gen-Xers, the twenty-somethings,
and the younger Boomers?  What will be there for them in 
their time of need? Read the New York Times article here.  
We are proud that The article also mentioned Boomers
International.


SECTION THREE -The Economy and Boomers
For the past several months we have been reading about 
companies both big and small - laying off, down-sizing,
and buying out thousands of employees. The decline of the 
dot.com and high tech world has reached out onto Main 
Street.  

They are interconnected sections of our economy and need 
each other to prosper.  

Baby Boomers fall into that age group that feels this 
economic change the most. Unfortunately, many boomers 
over the age of 40, and after many years of loyal 
service, have found themselves UNEMPLOYED. 

First of all, NEVER GIVE UP. The hardest part of being 
unemployed is "accepting" the situation, and then moving
forward to find a positive solution. At the beginning we
DENY it and fight to make it not be true. But eventually 
- the change in our economic situation must be thought 
of as a "transition" - this is where an ACCEPTANCE 
comes in and then a MOVING FORWARD can begin. 

There are many "job websites" - check them out. Go to your 
local temporary employment agencies and see what they have 
to offer.

There are two types of temp jobs; those that are truly 
temporary (3 days, 6 months, etc.), and those that are 
temporary with the intent to hire. We are all different
and we must choose what is best for our particular 
situation.  Who knows, at the end of it all, you will 
probably grow from the adversity and be a stronger 
and better person.  NEVER GIVE UP!

Here is a good article about changing jobs.

SECTION FOUR - Hearts and Heads
                 

The Easter and Passover holidays occur in this beautiful
time of the year - Spring. The beliefs, the cultures, 
and the traditions of all the people around the globe 
are really about just one thing - they are about LOVE.  
In this new century we are faced with the same problems 
that our ancestors were faced with - that we define
ourselves by our differences and not by our similarities. 
The goal of mankind should be to have ONE WORLD. 

It seems to be a far off dream, but with LOVE - 
we can change the world. 

The opposing sides of the One World debate were 
very much on the agenda for the conference and the
protest that was held recently at the Summit Of 
The Americas in Quebec City.  

By PAUL KRUGMAN 
There is an old European saying: anyone who is not
a socialist before he is 30 has no heart; anyone who
is still a socialist after he is 30 has no head.  
Suitably updated, this applies perfectly to the 
movement against globalization,  the movement 
that made its big splash in Seattle back in 1999.

SECTION FIVE - Hearts and Souls.

True love is a many splendored thing.  
Lost love is a heartache thing.

Many boomers are singles, either by choice or by reasons 
beyond their control. 

We have started a Questions and Answers column for 
couples in relationships - and another column for 
singles who have Questions or are in search for 
Answers in their affairs of the heart.
