My father was in a retirement home in the south of France the last few years of his life. I came to realize what happens to the elderly. Forgotten, taken away from society with no more use for them. I found it incredibly sad. I got to know them well. There was a particular piece of writing I read from a former resident.

As I sit in my wheelchair and look out of my window, nobody see’s me anymore. I sit here disregarded by society and swept by curbside. Nobody hears me, I’m trapped in this old body of mine. They now talk to me like a child, as though I don’t understand, but I do, I do! Listen to me! I’m the same 20 year old woman who everybody loved and admired! nothing has changed except by body! my mind is still that little girl. Help me! Please hear me!

This is an ongoing project to recognize them and celebrate their life's.
