Growing older

Getting older has it perks. With age comes wisdom, self-confidence and less stress. We asked residents all over the country about their experience growing older and they let us know their thoughts. 

What is the hardest thing about growing older? What is the best thing about growing older?

The hardest thing: Losing the freedom of coming and going. The best thing: Knowing how loved you are.
