Why this one wasn't featured is beyond me... I think you touched on a subject that is on the minds of many people who are getting older and those that care for their aging parents.

Your passion and respect for the elderly and the environment is what sets you apart from all others. May your life prosper because of the goodness you possess and your caring nature for all living creatures.
