The legacy grandparents need to leave behind

When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes.

But when you photograph people in black and white you photograph their souls. Ted Grant

Looking at old family photos we recognize the elders in younger days. Today, their smiling faces are lined, hair gray, thinning, waistlines thicker. They sit together at family functions laughing at stories from the past.

What they would love best is to share their stories with the kids. They would love to entertain, be heard, and be relevant.

The Western culture stigmatizes aging, while others including Greek, Korean, Chinese, Indian, Native American and African-American cultures revere and respect elders. Their wisdom and advice is sought in their communities, and they often care for their grandchildren.

Sunday, September 9th is Grandparents Day.

Save your money and spend your time with them. If that isn’t possible, talk to them, or better yet, listen. Their stories are the treasures they leave for you and your children.

As a very special gift, interview them and share their stories with your family and the world for free using Storycorp

Happy Grandparents Day!
