Many who watch this Dodge ad will be in awe of the showcased centenarians. So why we don’t stand in awe of the people who have lived to be 70 and 80 years of age? Ageism is so rampant in our society, but at some point, when we see someone who has attained a milestone distinction, we lose the fear and discrimination, and instead stand in awe. We need this to happen sooner than at age 100.
At Bridges Together, we are helping community leaders cultivate opportunities for older adults and children to come together in meaningful ways so that we may recognize how precious each person is at each stage of life.
