2. Here is the assignment:

American culture cannot seem to come to terms with growing older or death. What is the basis of this thinking, and what can be done to see this as part of lifeas journey? Your paper should be based on scholarly research and not your or other peopleas opinions.

Current APA format is required for this paper. That includes a title page, an abstract, the main body (with in-text and parenthetical citations), and reference page. Refer to the APA style guide provided in the course.

Your paper should be at least 5 pages of main body text, not including the title page, abstract page, and references (at least 8 pages total). At least 5 resources are required; use good scholarly/academic sources. Sources may include books, professional journal articles, and professional organization Internet/online articles and reports (no blogs or wikis, please). You are required to have at least 2 professional journal articles; for example, Journal of Marriage and Family. (Note: Do not use the Berger textbook. And if you use the Bible, it should not be one of your 5 required sources. Also, the Bible will not go on your reference list, but you will cite it in the body of your paper with scriptural reference and version used.)

The paper should be double-spaced, with 1a? margins and typed in 12-pt font. Be sure to include a page header with page number.

3. I have already turned in the ABSTRACT for a grade…so if it could go in this direction, thank you! Please USE THE FOLLOWING FOR MY ABSTRACT:

This paper will deal with psychological issues facing Americanas today. Issues such as fears of aging and death. The American society has grown uncomfortable with matters of growing old and dying. Most people are reluctant to talk openly about death. Americans are one of the most death denying cultures today. In fact, as a whole, we donat even like to use the term a?dieda?. Perhaps it reflects our superstitions or our fears. Maybe it has to do with our religious beliefs, or our philosophies regarding life. Only in America, it seems, is youth so valued and age so fearfully resisted. The American ideal is young, physical, full of potential, and older people as a group are treated as over-the-hill. This paper examines why there is such a stark fear of aging and death, Americaas response to it, and a solution to develop a sense of mature growth in the process.
