Graciousness, compassion, empathy, respect, regard, love, kindness. Aren’t these the ways we should treat everyone? How is it then, that when it comes to the elderly, some chose to disregard this list of common courtesies. This is the generation that gave the rest of us breath. They have made their contributions to society often through hard work and toil. They have experience and wisdom in their hand. They deserve our love and compassion. Why then, in the Western world particularly, do we hear of their so-called carers being so abusive and treating our sagacious gems of society, like dirt! In a world where we can be anything – be kind! BE KIND! TO EVERYONE! It’s really simple.
Life is good! Life is inspirational!
Why? What? How?
Ginz and Tonic started life as a year long challenge from June 2013 to June 2014 to write a poem a day to raise awareness of arrhythmias and syncope.
It has since kept going, posting a poem a day covering anything that comes to mind. Additionally, it supports the coaching framework of www.resetparenting.com and also offers workshops in school using poetry to reinvent the wheel of helping children get in touch with different aspects of their development.
Personalised poems are also offered for any occasion or to market your business for a donation to arrhythmia and syncope support group www.beatiteastmidlands.co.uk
This is a free site and asks for nothing in return but if you would like to support the above support group, Beat-It Grantham, then please get in touch.
