I'm retired after working for over 38 years of my life. I've been to 11 foreign countries and have shared many cultures. Everything I've done has increased my wisdom and knowlege and I decided a long time ago not to let that go to waste. I read for children at schools, sit with sick people as a volunteer, and teach things I know to others. I never miss an opportunity to learn more. Sometimes my opinion is not appreciated, but I always allow that other person to express their own opinion without it causing a war or too much of an argument, because an argument is just another way to communicate with a person. Life is just too short to waste time worrying and fighting.
