I feel privileged to be at our Oneita Wagnon Senior Center daily. When first selected for this job, I was so thrilled. I knew I wasn’t entering a place where I would be working with a star studded culture. I knew I wouldn’t be working with those found in articles and daily reports of the rich and famous. Probably not a single one of them would ever glitter in Hollywood’s limelight. Instead, I knew I would be challenged daily because I knew I would be working with some of the most noteworthy people on earth. They are older but wiser—gentle, yet strong. They practice patience, understanding, respect, and love for one another. They have no care about the bright lights of Hollywood because it is their lives that shine brightly and more meaningful than any star. They light up this community with leadership, wisdom, and kindness. I feel honored to be walking beside them and learning from them as we move forward on this path of life.
