You can always learn something from your elders. 8-year-olds can learn from 9-year-olds, just as octogenarians can learn from nonagenarians. With age comes wisdom. That’s the premise of this touching, farewell video from the CBC’s WireTap radio show, which is about to go off the air.
It’s not the first time we’ve explored this line of thinking. For a little life perspective, we’d encourage you to watch: Stephen Fry: What I Wish I Knew When I Was 18.
Or read: Stephen King Writes A Letter to His 16-Year-Old Self: “Stay Away from Recreational Drugs,” an excerpt from the anthology, Dear Me: A Letter to My 16-Year-Old Self.
