"Celebrate 100": Challenging my plans for the future
on July 20, 2013
Celebrate 100 is a thoroughly enjoyable, well written book that presented me with humor, hundreds of years of lessons learned by very inspiring "normal people" and, perhaps most important, challenged me to think not only about my past life but how to prepare for the next 30 or more years. I am one of the "younger generation" people with respect to the centenarians featured since I am now a young 71. I found them speaking to me in my own voice on many issues. That at times was comforting but also sometimes disturbing. The humor and humility of these people, who have lived through all of my years and that of my parents, was very touching. As I read the book I made many notes of poignant quotes, examples of how life should be lived, challenging thoughts and the clear and concise analyses by the authors. Without doubt my vision of the future has been challenged. It would be so good if everyone would read these wonderful stories, learn the lessons presented and appreciate the great respect for centenarians that the authors have shown.
