Masterpiece Living, a multi-specialty group who has spent more than 20 years providing expert guidance on aging science, has teamed with chart-topping singer-songwriters Grant Maloy Smith and Mike Greenly on a challenge to stamp out ageism. The “I See You” challenge, which began in January, now launches into its second phase ... all of which began with a song.
“I heard a group of older adults talking a few years ago,” Smith says. “One of them said she felt invisible, as if younger people were looking right through her on the street. That really struck me.” Inspired by her words, Smith and Greenly set out to collaborate on the song, “I See You.”
“I See You” was written to inspire people of all ages to really see older adults for who they are, and value their skills, talent and wisdom.

Last month, the “I See You” campaign encouraged people to make eye contact with older adults and offer a greeting, look for opportunities to engage them in meaningful conversation, and call out ageism when it occurs. It’s not too late to participate.
To join phase two of the “I See You” campaign, visit the Successful Aging in Action website and sign the petition pledging to:
- Share your stories of interacting with an older person.
- Carry out a random act of kindness toward an older person.
- Ask an older person to share his or her story, or a bit of wisdom, with you.
Share the pledge link on Social Media with #ISeeYou!
"Ageism is the last acceptable form of discrimination," Masterpiece Living President, Dr. Roger Landry, says. "We're doing our best to make sure we stamp out ageism and begin to value the human capital that is our older adult population.”
