Senior citizens are often overlooked in our society, cast aside in favor of younger generations. It’s a sad reality, because it’s the seniors who have lived the most exciting lives and have the most incredible stories to tell.
This eye-opening video serves to remind us that people in their Golden Years are sometimes forgotten, but they’re still very much alive. At first, the participants answer a very simple yet poignant question: “What do you see when you look at me?” The words are devastating: senile, frail, dependent. But by the end of the video, the mood completely changes and these participants show us who they truly are — the amazing things no one else bothers to see.
The mission of Wish of a Lifetime’s (WOL) is to foster respect and appreciation for seniors by fulfilling life-enriching wishes. They uncover inspirational stories of hope from deserving seniors across the country who have not stopped dreaming or living a life of purpose. By sharing these stories, WOL aims to be a catalyst for change on how society views and treats our aging population.
What an awesome video that encourages us viewers to start really seeing seniors, and to be part of this important movement. Please SHARE it with your friends on Facebook!
