In the Time of Old Age
We live in a time when there is great emphasis placed on youth. In some cultures the aged are revered, their wisdom is highly respected; but today in America the focus is on youth. People are ready to buy ointments, pills and diet supplements which promise to make them look and feel young. Some are even willing to spend large sums of money for surgery which will supposedly give them a youthful appearance. The very thought of getting old causes many to fear.
