The Writings of Ahava Emunah Lange: Maybe You’ll Be Old Someday

In honor of my wife’s memory, and to help continue her amazing legacy, I will be republishing over the next few months some of her writings, which not only give an insight into how amazing she was, but really helped inspire so many people around the world.

My plan is to also publish her writings in a book, along with testimonials from those who were somehow inspired or helped by her (whether by her writings or good deeds). If that includes you, please send your experiences to me at israellycool-at-yahoo-dot-com.


Maybe You’ll Be Old Someday

First published Oct 28th 2014

Almost everyday, I see or hear the words:
I’m so old!
I don’t want to be old!
Oh no, 30 (or 40 or 50….) that’s so old!
Blah blah… such ‘n such… OMG we are getting SO old!

Really? Old? Is that a bad thing because I’m praying for my next birthday and the next…. I don’t know if I’ll see 40 but I’m sure excited about the opportunity and the same goes for 50 and 60 and 70….

I know it’s just an affectation. What is “old” anyway? A number? Not a single person, on earth, has met a creature or a being that is immune to aging. There’s no insurance policy, clause, or contract that will prevent the inevitable.

You are guaranteed of only one thing: one day you will die.
If you’re very lucky, you will get old.
