About the Event
In second grade, I was having a hard time with friends and recess was a dreadful time. One day was particularly rough (Jane chose a new best friend everyday, and that day it wasn’t me- ugh!) and I went to my grandmother’s after school. She said to me with grandmotherly patience and wisdom, “Hoooneeey... it’s haaard”. Even as a kid I knew that she was being kind and that it probably seemed like a trivial matter to someone who had lived more. Her eldership and wisdom allowed her to know that it was hard, sure, and it, too, would pass. In some indigenous cultures, if a difficult decision must be made, a council of elders is consulted with the acknowledgement of the wealth of wisdom that (ideally) comes with age. Perspective, time, experience, hardship, and insight all contribute to the wisdom of elders. Who are the elders in your community? What have others passed on to you? If you were to pass on what you have learned to those in the generations following you, what would your words of wisdom be? How can you pass this wisdom on?
