Fear and Pain

Henri points out that…” for most people in our world, growing old is filled with fear and pain.  Millions of the elderly are left alone, and the end of their cycle becomes a source of bitterness and despair.”   He promises to explore the reasons why but  is quick to point out that,  “there is a temptation to make aging into a problem of the elderly and to deny our human solidarity in this most human process.”  Again, he cautions, that, “maybe we have been trying hard to silence the voices of those who remind us (the elderly) of our own destiny.”   It is a question that needs an answer.  Do you fear this inevitable path?  Are you, personally, experiencing discrimination because of your age?
