Old people are America’s fastest-growing age group, especially in New York City where they grow five times as fast as the general population, rising nearly 30 percent since 2000.
Leland talked about it in Milan, during “Il Tempo delle Donne”, the cultural festival dedicated to women that Corriere della Sera organizes every year.
Italy, along with Japan, is the country where people live the longest. Yet everybody can learn something from the resilient old people of New York.
In order to adapt to such chaotic context at that age, people have to be able to choose happiness every day, despite what the external circumstances might be.
An incredible lesson for everybody at every age.
