In ages past, our old ones were story-tellers. This was the way things were passed along to the generations that followed. For this reason the aged people made it a point to remember every detail so they could relate it at a later time.
They were the word and picture carriers making history and spiritual values alive and important.
In recent times we have made our old ones think they are not important. We spoof their stories and make them feel foolish.
The truth is that we are ignorant of what is precious and how to a da li he li tse di appreciate age.
Rigidity can creep in and set even the young mind if there are no soft memories, no laughter, no time too deep for tears. Age is grace- a time too valuable to waste.
