OLD is NOT a Four-Letter Word

by Sara Vogt - March 25, 2014

“Old age, both others’ and our own, is not to be feared. It is to be nothing less than accepted and embraced. Old is, most certainly, not a four-letter word.” Our guest today, Harry Getzov, is the author of those words and the book titled gOLD – The Extraordinary Side of Aging Revealed Through Inspiring Conversations. He also writes that when elders become less relevant in our world, we lose their wisdom, their strength and their stories. He has interviewed thousands of seniors and has told many of their stories in his book – a great source of encouragement for young and old. You can order the book from Amazon and you can be in touch with Mr. Getzov through www.eldercation.com.

Excerpt from Harry Getzov’s book gOLD:

“At first glance, you’ll see familiar terms such as aged, out of date, broken down, impaired, enfeebled, obsolete, wasted, inactive, dilapidated, fossil, decrepit, over the hill, done and, yes, the one word that feeds so much of the ageism present in our culture: senile.

But look at some of the other words sprinkled throughout that same listing: mature, seasoned, experienced, stately, honorable, versed, established, veteran, classic, skilled, practiced, venerable, original, vintage, legendary and wise. Same word. Two ends of the spectrum. As people continue to live longer and the generational landscape shifts dramatically in the coming years, the time is ripe for an important cultural transformation. It’s time because—I have news for you—a powerful group of seniors is on the way, and this group, in particular, really means business. It’s time to change the way we think about aging and older people. It’s time to discover gOld.”

In today’s feature we also hear from several seniors here in our community as they share insights about getting older and living life to the fullest.
