Inspiration from a Male Elder
"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." - Saint Augustine
"Today there were a lot of volunteers, so my friend and I were waiting for more seniors to arrive. We finally saw a male senior and he requested us to cut his nails. While we were cutting his nails, he told us jokes and made us feel comfortable. He also asked us if we had ever traveled outside of the country and told us his own vacation stories in Europe.
He advised us to travel around the world when we're young because traveling will inspire us and provide a different perspective on life. He told us that we would remember those trips 50 years from now just like he does.
This conversation was truly inspirational; he encouraged us to venture out into the world and to discover more things in life."
