World’s Oldest Person

I saw in the news that the world’s oldest person just passed away at the age of 117. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/nabi-tajima-dead-worlds-oldest-person-117/ I am always amazed to hear the stories of people who live this long. They have lived through monumental changes in our society. Whatever lessons they have learned through their long life would certainly be worth hearing. Some of these stories are collected in a book called: Earth’s Elders: The Wisdom of the World’s Oldest People, Jerry Friedman.
