Ageism Happens…

leave a comment »

Ageism aka “over the hill” or “old bitty”: Now that’s not a nice thing to say…

Ageism happens! It happens to the best of us. It does not discriminate. It just happens and we can’t do anything about it. Except maybe embrace it and share the experiences that one has compiled from their hard-earned lives with those that come after them. Sometimes you don’t need to reinvent the wheel when you have a wealth of ready-made information waiting to be tapped into. Such a waste of time when young and old alike could just easily combine their resources and contribute to the mending of the social, cultural, and political ills that prevails in today’s world.

Ageism is not a dirty word, especially when the global population, particularly in western nations, will be comprised of people over the age of fifty in the coming years. It is time to restore respect to those who have earned their silver hair. Isn’t it ironic that young people try to find ways to color their hair white? Trend? Fad? Hmmmm…maybe. Think about it…
