Ageism is not a healthy thing

Last week I celebrated my 72nd birthday. My 15 year old granddaughter said she told her health teacher that the family was taking me out for dinner. The teacher wanted to know if I was "still with it." Charna said she laughed and laughed, that I was more "with it" than the teacher. How sad that the teacher conveys this prejudice. I had a "with it" grandmother so I never belittled elders. I hope I am setting a similar example for my grandchildren .
