In Praise of the Elderly
We're very vain. We want to live, but we don't want to age or look old. But living and aging are inseparable, and old age is inevitable. So let's celebrate, not segregate, the elderly. Wizened but wise, the elderly teach us that life is finite but souls are infinite, and that senescence isn't convalescence or obsolescence, but the very essence of our soul's solo sojourn in space, time, and fate.
