91-Year-Old Man Raises Money to Prevent Eviction by Daughter

 

SOMEBODY has to ask!!  WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO HUMAN DIGNITY? 

To coin a phrase I’ve always liked, “You don’ get to be ‘old’ by bein’ no fool!!” 

There was a time when the experience learned through a lifetime was valued.  Those who had learned to flourish under the harshest conditions imaginable – 60 or 70 years of simply “living” – were cared for and provided for and nourished with “family” in their waxing years. 

Their experience with the myriad of problems resolved over a lifetime was sought out, listened to, considered.  The wisdom acquired through guiding children and grandchildren was considered and given its’ PROPER weight in decisions. 

Once considered “Patriarchs” and “Matriarchs” of Their Family, learned elders were given the proper respect, acknowledgement, and FINAL AUTHORITY ON ALL MATTERS “FAMILY” they had spent a lifetime EARNING.

 

What happened?  😦
