The future is today. This was started in April 2015. Fast forward to today, October, 2019. Over four years. So much has happened including moving out of the depths of rationing and feeling like I really had "something" when I had a quarter in my hand -- a dollar.....well, that was wealthy.
A hiccup in life. We didn't know it wouldn't last. We were uncertain as to how we would move from day to day and sometimes within a day -- to find the ability to add a few gallons to the gas tank of a car we were given by a wonderful member of our extended family.
FAMILY. That's another entry. There's a world of difference -- the here and now and the ever after--in that word. I turn away from those who define "family" as any related group of people. I've learned how blood does not a family make; life lived for family is what differentiates.
TOLERANCE. We talk the talk but don't walk the walk when it comes to those who are "ahead of us" on life's path by two or more decades.
OBVIOUSLY. They made it...they're now a part of this segment of the population. Whenever you're "a member" of something you see and react differently; some turn away, some move away and some stand up and "shout out" raising a new found voice for "their" cause.
Makeup, clothing and healthy living have made significant changes in our appearance, that's true.
SO, is this NEW educational concept joining in with the movement so prevalent in society to cast aside when they feel like it anyone whom they see as a challenge to their "system"?
For me, I believe we work together; we help one another; we share and we care. It's the basis of a sound and healthy society and economy.
Take note, Gen X'ers and Millenials or when your walk into the twilight years begins -- at 30 and beyond according to generations before you -- your lives will be even more challenging because you failed, failed to heed the warning that you are next in line in a progression of Ageism Prejudice.
