Grand Memories Celebration and Wisdom from the Hearts of Our Elders
Grand Memories Celebration and Wisdom from the Hearts of Our Elders Author:Arthur Kornbaber M.D. To learn the date, place or name of an event consult a history book. — To feel the true impact and lessons to be learned from it, ask the people who were there. — In late summer of 2001, Hampton Inn and Hampton Inn & Suites team members across the nation set out to capture history by talking with the people who have lived it: senior citizens who h... more »ave experiences to share not only about events of major impact, but about the lessons of everyday life.
Hundreds of our hotels, teamed up with senoir facilities across the nation. Hotel members went to the facilities, spent time with the seniors and wrote down their stories, their "Grand Memories." Each hotel then created a scrapbook of the visit to give to the senior facility.
The timing og the project was fortuitous. During the month when we were celebrating the lives and memories of our senior citizens, the United States mourned together the tragedies of September 11, 2001. Perhaps more than ever before, we learned the value of human life and emotions. And we rediscovered the importance of both creating and sharing our own "Grand Memories."
This small book contains just a few of the amusing stories, valuable anecdotes and practiced advice we learned from an extraodinary genereation. We would like to extend our gratitude to all seniors who took the time to share with us their priceless stories and wisdom.
For us, the book will serve as a reminder of the "Grand Memories" we created for ourselves by learning first hand the value of human history.
Our hope is that by reading these stories, you, too, can catch a glimpse of what life was like for our older generations and how we can learn from their lives, loves, and experiences.« less
