Speaking out against elder abuse

Mickey Rooney, one time famous actor, was brave to speak out in Congress this week about elder abuse.

As people age, the losses mount up under the best situations. Rooney was ripped off by loved ones, the worst loss of all.

He was also not afraid to cry and show other emotions in Congress and in press interviews.

Way to go Mickey!
