As we all know by now, celebrated actor Mickey Rooney stood up and testified in front of the Senate on his experience on being a victim of elder abuse.
The actor didn’t want sympathy, but wants others to know that they are not alone and they have nothing to be ashamed of.
“You have the right to control your own life, to be happy, and not live in fear. Please, for yourself, end the cycle of abuse,” he said. “Tell your story to anyone who will listen and above all, have hope.”
