12/28: How Old is Old?

At what age is someone considered old?  The short answer is, “It depends.”  According to this study by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion conducted for Home Instead Senior Care, the answer is based on age.

    I wish people would stop with agism. We are all just souls living temporarily in a human form. We are all millions and millions of years old just co-creating an experience. If the world would wake up then this place would be a much happier place. Who cares about how old this body is during this lifetime, it’s more important to focus on how many people you have impacted in a positive way. I believe Ghandi was a master teacher. Everyone should learn the truth – it will set them free!
