We as Americans are able to recognize and appreciate longevity, which is one of the greatest achievements of the 20th century.
And it is one of the greatest gifts that may be given. The Los Angeles Department of Aging (LADOA) has moved forward in many areas in preparation for the various changes taking place within the senior community. Let's pay tribute and learn from the generations of Older Americans whose hard work, sacrifice and ingenuity have resulted in enhanced lives for us and generations to come. Let's not forget long life is a gift. We must sustain and prepare for it.
