Ben makes an excellent point….
It’s inspiring to see so many elders getting credit for “valuable” societal roles that have been going on without credit for generations. I hope that I, too, can find a way to share my gifts in some productive way in my elderhood. I often wonder about all the unnoticed gifts that are contributed to the backbone of our world culture and think about the tragedy that would ensue should this ever come to a sudden halt. I came across a clever leverage of technology linking up the gifts of 600+ elders from across North America–Elder Wisdom Circle. “The mission of our association is to promote and share elder know-how and accumulated wisdom. We also have a goal of elevating the perceived value and worth of our senior community.” It’s another great highlight of inspirational content valuing the contribution of elders . . . find them at www.elderwisdomcircle.org
