Too often, we leave our elders to fend for themselves. The people that cared for us for so many years are left to shop, clean, and get around on their own, even if they can't do it efficiently anymore.
Youth can often see elders as "unimportant" and find them to be a burden, but this is far from the case. We can learn so much from the people who came before us, and we should be listening to their advice and lessons rather than dismissing them as too old to be useful.
As we grow older, of course, we learn to cherish those who are aging in our lives, because we know that we don't have a lot of time left with them. It's something we learn as we mature, and something we want our kids to learn from us.
That's why when Jennifer Christopher Coker saw what was happening at her local Publix, she knew she had to share it.
