Inspired by her grandmother's life story, Benita Cooper began a writing group and blog for both seniors and young people.

She calls it "The Best Day of My Life (so far)."

"I believe that isolation isn't just a senior problem," said Benita.

Her blog offers online companionship.

"With social media helping out, those conversations can get bigger and more dynamic," said Benita.

Everyone has a story to tell.

Hattie Lee Ellerve and Mo McCooper attend the class. They read their personal stories to the group.

Benita says, "...there's stories about civil rights and hour a week and it opens up doors to a million worlds."

"The Best Day of My Life (so far)" is going national with groups all across the country.
