Everywhere I go, I see potential

Tonight in Mass, I made an effort to move a couple pews forward in order to shake the hand of an elderly gentleman that was all alone during the ritual of ‘Peace.’ Seeing elderly folks all alone does something to my heart; it breaks a little each time I envision loneliness and despair!
I guess that is why I am drawn to being an elderly caregiver. To imagine someone being all alone and desolate simply breaks my heart; even just seeing older people in a restaurant by themselves is cause for sadness for me.
Potentially, I would like to take care of the entire aging population. At least then, if I had them altogether, then I could take care of each of them in turn and show them love and dignity and compassion.
With these thoughts, I tend to overwhelm myself. I am just one individual that expects way more than one person can offer the world of myself. Crazy right?
I just want all older people to know that I truly believe that With Age Comes Respect. Someone has to believe this and display it. If not me, then who else would be willing to do it? That is why I see potential everywhere I go!
