The respect and admiration for the elderly has definitely come from my Latin roots. Both of my parents were taught that learning from and spending time with their grand-parents was a privilege not an obligation. Grand parents are “a kind of live history books” if you decide to open the book you could learn so much from them and be inspired. I have always admired my great grandmother for her service to others, her young lively spirit despite being almost 107 years old this May, her faith, her strong-willed, and her ability to overcome the hardships and battles that life has given her for over a century. Despite her independence, at age 101, family decided it was time to for her to live in an elderly care facility, Caluce. During my visits to Caluce I had the wonderful opportunity to come in contact with other seniors, all with their own story to tell. At first when I started to volunteer my time, I thought that I was going to give some happiness to these elders, but every time I left, I felt a sense of fullness and satisfaction.
