This billboard was seen between Burlington and Greensboro. It states that "Roles Change" and that AARP will be there to care for you. The photo is very thought provoking. We've been thinking a lot about visual literacy and the role of photos in helping people make meaning. Billboards have "flash text" on them; the reader needs to get the message in the few seconds they look up as they are driving. If you get a chance, show it so a child and see how long it takes them to understand the picture even if they can't read the Spanish. If they can't get it, tell them what it means.
Whether you are young or old, the sign is food for thought. While Greensboro has a lot of great options for senior citizens, it would be nice to know that family will be there when you need them.
Happy Monday! Happy November!
