Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, and Former Surgeon General, Dr David Satcher are talking about the "unspeakable" today:
I have seen, first-hand, how cruel and awful Alzheimer's Disease can be...and how much havoc is causes the entire family.
Right now, one of the dearest people in my life, is exhibiting symptoms of early stages of Alzheimers. It profoundly saddens me...and I feel pretty helpless right now.
This discussion from these very public figures is definitely a move in the right direction.
