Life Lessons From The Oldest And Wisest (eBook)
Inspiration, Wisdom, And Humor For Younger Generations
de Dave Romanelli
Sobre o livro
Elder Americans in their eighties, nineties, and even hundreds, have survived the Holocaust, endured the Great Depression, fought in World War II, lived through the Civil Rights Movement, and endured countless booms and busts. And yet, unlike other parts of the world where elders are respected and revered, so many American elders tend to be lonely and feel irrelevant, without a voice or presence in American culture.
The elders need our attention and loveand we need their stories and wisdom. Dave Romanelli is on a journey to meet and listen to the stories of Americans who have seen (and lived) it all! One person he met is a 103-year-old who began driving a horse and buggy, then a Model A Ford, and now a yellow Smart Car, who says, The first hundred years were the hardest. Everything after that is a breeze. Another new friend is a ninety-year-old who lost four grandparents, both parents, and three siblings in Auschwitz, and is a reminder to all of us to wake up and be grateful.
The elders featured inLife Lessons from the Oldest and Wisest share a mix of history, wisdom, andjoie de vivre, which is our most precious resource. Let us cherish itbefore its too late.
