Elders Bring More to the Table than they take away..aging in
society as a net positive
Given the baby boomers tsunami like numbers and supposed burden
society, their aging process is occurring in an environment
built by their
efforts and achievements. Its important to remember that they
once, and they were taken care of in a world without all of the
technology, efficiencies, and advancements that are a part of
legacy. To consider the aging population to be a burden on our
society is ridiculous.
Elders very well may save the world through what they offer to
generations, in wisdom, in practical solutions, in sharing their
and world view.
Recognizing that we will all be in their shoes, if we make it,
contribute to our analysis of “their” net value.
Seeking wisdom from our elders will help us then guide the next
generation. And someday we just might be our own
