I can’t think of one person I know who hasn’t learned something incredibly useful from an older person in their life, whether that person may be a relative or a stranger. Our lives, all of them, are built upon the choices and knowledge of the people that came before us.

We see Amazingness everywhere. It’s the retired postman who can play the ukulele. It’s the grandparent who knows morse code. It’s the neighbour who was an opera singer.

Who’s with me?
Long live the Amazings!
