Boomer, West Virginia
People in the boomer generation, those born between 1946 and 1964, are  celebrating the 50th birthdays of their youngest members in 2014. To mark this event, AARP asked Washington, D.C.-based photographer Jared Soares to explore Boomer, W.Va.
 
The AARP Bulletin went to 27 states to get responses to questions on how people are doing in the economy and what they expect from Washington in the coming year. We got back great thought-provoking comments and beautiful Instagram portraits. You can find more at the official AARP Instragam account, AARP_OFFICIAL.
