You might be surprised what this article will focus on. I like to watch American Idol like many others. But I want to focus on who we might want to admire in our culture.
In some cultures older adults who have practiced their faith and grown in spiritual wisdom and compassion are admired. Their wisdom is listened to with respect and care. The goal is to become older and spiritually wise.
They have been through hard times and not only survived but their faith became stronger. They learned how to deal with challenges and loss.They have lived through all the stages and life and probably feel they are always learning and that each day is gift. They see the wonder of creation and the sacredness of life.
We could learn so much from some of our older adults over eighty or ninety, and hundred years old.Their bodies may be older but their minds and hearts have much to teach us.
How I wish we would follow that path. I wish their were more programs showing people we can learn from and be in awe of their spiritual wisdom. Maybe they should be our true American idols. What do you think?
