Hi Alex! Thanks for sharing. What you wrote got met thinking that as a parent myself, I find myself sometimes feeling sad that my son doesn't have that "village" to turn to when he wants to play, when he's hungry or for any other reason. He has only me, his father or any other person that I tell him he can turn to.
I think that the "village" is a positive thing - to know that you are a part of a community and that you're not alone in the world. That alone is something that can be easily elevated.
In general, what you wrote was really inspiring, in so many ways.

Hi Stephanie, I appreciate your contribution. I'm 31 years old, and from my past experience (say 15 years ago), the only way teenagers got the chance to mentor the older adults was through a mandatory program in school, that forces you to volunteer once or twice a week. How would you suggest that teenagers and older adults work together to accomplish something?

Thank you Jason, I agree. It is a long-term solution. It's not a trend, but a way of living.
