AGING : YES, YOU CAN'T WISH IT AWAY !

by Joseph Kainikkara

Yes, aging is a fact of life.


As the poet says, "And our hearts though stout and brave, are still beating funeral marches to the grave".


The 99 year-old who still volunteers is making known a truth; doing good to your less fortunate fellow beings generates tremendous inner peace and satisfaction which a self-centered person would never be able to experience.


That mental peace in turn increases your longevity. By living for others also, you would find that your life is meaningful.


I am just past 60 and have recently returned from the Middle East after a career lasting more than 3 decades. I am actively considering giving free tuition to deserving school children in my locality.


That would keep me busy and give the satisfaction which is so important !

Joseph, Congratulations you want to become a Social Entrepreneur, by giving free education to school children. Are you going to be planning any fund raising events?

Personally, my social mission is to help eradicate Seniors Poverty in terms of an Income above the poverty level and to get affordable housing for any Seniors that need it.
