On November 4th, when president elect Barack Obama gave his acceptance speech, he spoke of 106 year old Ann Nixon Cooper.  He told the story of her history and what she has lived through and seen. I was lucky enough to witness this speech in person and her story brought tears to my eyes.  All I could think of was how lucky I am to work with seniors because each one of them is special, and each one of them has a wonderful story to tell.  I hope that his historic moment also puts an greater awareness and respect to the seniors in this country.  (And well, I hope he also can help the healthcare system which leaves a lot of seniors out in the cold.. but thats another story.)
