Stories are one of the primary ways we learn about ourselves, others, life and the world around us. In honor of Older Americans Month, the California Department of Aging (CDA) is asking older Californians to share their stories, their legacies with others. If you’re an elder, they want to hear your experiences, wisdom, challenges and triumphs, creative inspiration and help share it with all Californians. This is a great way for you, or those elders in your life, to share about themselves and the difference they make in the world. People can share in a variety of formats to make it easy and fun, such as: a captioned photo(s), video recording, audio recording, or some writing, artwork or oral history.
We look forward to celebrating and being inspired by You! Visit the CDA’s California Chronicles page for more details on participating in this project. Share your story today, or inspire an elder you love to share theirs!
