Tears Not of Joy
by Joynetta Cutts

Across the United States, tens of thousands of Americans are living lives as the forgotten. They see friends and family once or twice a yearat best. They have no one to talk to, no one to listen to them, no one to simply give them a hug and a smile.

Who are these forgotten? They are the men and women in nursing facilities and personal care homes across the country. According to Joynetta in Tears Not of Joy, most receive inferior or inadequate treatment, and many times theyre even doped up to keep them manageable. The glimpse she gives into the day-in, day-out lives of these men and women is truly heart wrenching.

But Joynetta doesnt stop there; she provides hope. She reminds readers that each one of us can do something. By simply visiting a local nursing home and spending time with residents there, we become part of the solution to this sad epidemic.

As a former caretaker herself and as the daughter of a woman now in a nursing home, Joynetta provides an intimate look at this very real problemand its solution.
