When I am in their presence I never talk except to answer a question or to ask a question of my own. I am a history buff and for me an old person is a national treasure; a walking novel – because they have seen, heard and felt things that a person my age can only wonder about or read in books. The lovely woman in this video is a perfect example of why they are are meant to be cherished. We can learn so much from them when we sit back, shut up and let history unfold.
