4. Darling Magazine's article, Wisdom in Age: Learning From Those Who Have Gone Before Us, "I want to encourage and challenge us as the younger generation to truly take advantage of the wisdom of those who have gone before us. Think about the women in your life who are twenty, thirty, forty or fifty years older. Think about the tremendous strength, grace and beauty that they posses. We have so much to learn! Lets make room for the voices of the elderly in our lives, for their stories and experiences and wisdom. Lets laugh and cry and do life together, understanding that getting older is not a negative thing. It’s a beautiful thing."
