Shannon commented on The Compassion Box

It's always OK, until it happens to us.

This is a great idea. I say this because my grand mother went through quite a bit. We were much younger back then, however, I remember how she always wanted another cup of tea. She was perennially hungry and we'd keep wondering what was going on. Of course adults managed the situation well, but the diagnosis was clearly absent.

My grandmother wanted to feel valued. I think we missed that. She wanted to talk. She wanted to express herself. We didn't know how. We didn't see the signs. All of us will eventually get older, senile and less productive.

This is a step in the right direction. Good work, Mansi. I'll be keeping a close watch on your progress, which is already quite mature.
