A longer life is not a crime; it is a blessing. According to WHO, “A longer life brings with it opportunities, not only for older people and their families, but also for societies as a whole. Additional years provide the chance to pursue new opportunities such as further education, a new career or pursuing a long neglected passion.”
“Our older people should be celebrated, not neglected.

“In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long are you young.”- Samuel Ullman
