There are good people in this world that respect and help seniors. It takes experience to relate to them but not everyone can associate their experience with the wisdom of aging.
The society in which we live is fraught with competitiveness and aggression that detracts from the necessary caring and nurturing environment that seniors need to get by. Intolerance of those who cannot fight makes the elderly easy targets for the ignorant and inexperienced who believe that they're doing the world a favor by teaching them a lesson physically and emotionally.
There aren't any rewards for aging, just a downward slide into vulnerability and immobility. The heading says Seniors Go Entire Week but they're not going anywhere. I now know why seniors simply notice that it's turned dark outside and close down for the night.
Everything costs money: The trip across town. The glasses to see at night. The food. The tickets. The dry cleaners and on and on.
I could use Walmart as a walking park but I did that last week and the week before.
Today I got on my KHS mountain bike, turned on the mid-drive electric system and zoomed outta town. At my age, it's the only way to get things to happen by dropping everything and just going.
