Heritage Corner


Our heritage

In honor of our Seniors, we pay tribute to a generation that has survived change and adversity. As we journey though life, and our grandparents definitely have a thing or two to teach us.  It’s more than respect—it’s about taking the time to listen. We must remember that our senior citizens are knowledgeable people who have lived through both the heartache and jubilation of life. And most important—they still have something to contribute to society.  By sharing their wisdom and experience, they serve as role models for future generations.

We pay tribute to our senior citizens and their contributions to Bermuda. ”Let’s take a walk back with them…

Grandma’s Pearls of Wisdom:
I’ve traveled paths you’ve yet to walk
Learned lessons old and new 
And now this wisdom of my life 
I’m blessed to share with you 
Let kindness spread like sunshine 
Embrace those who are sad 
Respect their dignity, give them joy 
And leave them feeling glad 
Forgive those who might hurt you 
And though you have your pride 
Listen closely to their viewpoint 
Try to see the other side 
Walk softly when you’re angry 
Try not to take offense 
Invoke your sense of humor 
Laughter’s power is immense! 
Express what you are feeling 
Your beliefs you should uphold 
Don’t shy away from what is right 
Be courageous and be bold 
Keep hope right in your pocket 
It will guide you day by day 
Take it out when it is needed 
When it’s near, you’ll find a way 
Remember friends and family 
Of which you are a precious part 
Love deeply and love truly 
Give freely from your heart 
The world is far from perfect 
There’s conflict and there’s strife 
But you still can make a difference 
By how you live your life 
And so I’m very blessed to know 
The wonders you will do 
Because you are my granddaughter 
And I believe in you.  ~ Becky Netherland
