The problem in America is it is full of old people. Old people who worked hard all their lives to have what they have today. Old people who fought in wars for what you have today. Old people who saw their friends and family die for the flag so fools can disrespect it. Old people who are strong from their environment and jobs. Old people who saw the best of the US. Old people who want the American tradition passed on to our youth today. Old people who know what is best for our country and your future. Old people who are strong and strong willed and set in American traditions. Old people who have the biggest hearts and who are willing to help others. Old people who have strong ethics and respect for others. Old people who are so willing to help others in need but would never think of asking for help. Old people who can see through all the misconceptions. Old people who are loyal to each other and our country. Old people are made up of ranchers, farmers, business leaders, truck drivers who would never consider a full retirement and keep giving back. Old people who know what America could be and want the best for friends and family.
As you get annoyed for that old person shuffling in front of you, think of what that person may have accomplished in their lives to make your life better.
The director of the George Washington College of Medicine feels the brain of an elderly person does not decrease as is commonly believed. The brain is no longer as fast as it was in youth. However, it wins in flexibility.
A large study in the United States found that:
The most productive age of a person is from 60 to 70 years.
The 2nd most productive human stage is the age from 70 to 80 years old.
Our 3rd most productive stage is between 50 and 60 years old.
Therefore, if you are 60, 70 or 80 years old, you are at the best level of your life.
We Americans are one of the only societies that do not look to the elderly for wisdom.
Thank God for old people.
