Towards the Chanuka light: go visit the elderly

Just a photo I took today in a nursing home. Made me think how there is beauty and hope even the darkest of places.

If you want to do something good today please visit a nursing home. Our wisest and most amazing people feel very alone and demoralized. You don’t have to know them and they don’t have to know you. Just go have a chat. Smile. Listen. They just want to know that someone, anyone still cares about them. You’ll learn the most valuable lessons and it’s a most humbling experience. Don’t think about it. Just go.

If Chanuka is about bringing light into the dark, it must include a visit to your local nursing home.
