Tuesday Writing Prompt #2 - Age of Old Age

From: SkyeB.

Merry Tuesday people!
 
A writing prompt as this year's Festivus gift - since you've all been so good. 
 
Sci-Fi Writing Prompt #2
"My goal is to live forever, so far so good." I think I saw this on a shirt. Well, people are living ALOT longer these days. In the year 2050, there will be more people over the age of 65 than anyone else (take a look at the link). So, how would this affect societies of that time - politically? medically? socially? theatrically? 
 
 It's a holiday, so lets make these stories < 800 words.
 
Just a reminder of what we're doing here:
1. Write a story based on the prompt
2. If you want, password protect the story using your word editor software (ie MS Word)
3. Upload it to the sci-fi group's files page.
4. Email me the password
5. All who participated will get emailed the passwords on Sunday night.
6. Review and feedback begins
7. Another prompt on Tuesday
 
By the way...prompt #3 will be about a happy topic!
 
Happy Chrismahanukwanzaka!
Skye
