Experience is the strongest cultural currency we hold. But many of us fear aging, less because it marks a march towards death, but moreso for a fear of irrelevance, a perceived ‘loss’ of youth (which explains our cultural obsession with extending youthfulness). We currently have access to one of the largest, most experienced demographics of elders in human history; yet, we have accidentally (or incidentally) forgotten about them. However, through the wisdom of their lived experiences, if we but reconnect to them, listen to their, learn from them, we can all learn how to age, better.
