Elderly people have a lot of great information to pass on to subsequent generations. The problem is, they rarely do. They have been widows/widowers, single parents, unemployed with mortgages, dealt with family members with issues, had baby mama/daddy issues, have had crises of faith, brushes with violence, have been remarried with children, etc. Nearly everything that we currently experience, they have already dealt with. If you could question an elderly person about their life's experiences, and receive non-judgemental answers, what would your questions be?
