In Praise of the Elderly
We're very vain. We want to live, but we don't want to age or look old. What should we do? Since living and aging are inseparable, and old age is inevitable, we should celebrate, not segregate, the elderly. Wizened but wise, the elderly teach us that senescence isn't convalescence or obsolescence, but the very essence of our soul's solitary sojourn in space, time, and fate.
