Cherishing Our Elders
To the Editor:
As a former academic now nearing the end of my legal career, I can empathize with Morris Freedman [“Retirement Blues,” April]. If he has managed to illuminate one small speck of human endeavor by kindling the spark of learning in a single student (as was obviously done with him by his teachers), or in his writings, he has greatly succeeded.
It is, indeed, a sad commentary that the wealth of knowledge and experience of retired persons is not put to full use in our communities.
