Most of us look forward to the Fourth of July holiday because it heralds the height of summer. This year, we found greater meaning in the holiday by speaking with some of our Hebrew Rehabilitation Center residents who chose to immigrate to the U.S. from other countries. Many of those who live at HRC reflect the rich diversity of the immigrant experience. Read their stories: http://bit.ly/1IMFRRm

We loved watching this video of a talented WWII veteran spontaneously breaking into dance during a special performance at Reagan airport. This is a great reminder to celebrate those "little" things in life that make you happy, like hearing your favorite song. #ReAgeLife (source: https://youtu.be/eAYm3Pv9R6Y)
