Another jab at age. You know what, people, we all get older if we get the luck to still be alive. I have talked with Dr.s in the past and they said that now-days many men cannot rise to make love once they are past about 30 years of age! Sad but true. Maybe it is our diets or our way of life but age is always out there ready to lower our lives. And yes, we are best at our youth when we are good looking and pretty. But the road goes unfolding no matter what. And another truth is that we are more intelligent and more bright when we are past our best youth years. We know from experience on how to live and love each other. Yes we all die, but in the end what matters most is rather how we lived and loved our lives and our children if we had done our jobs. Frank Sinatra once sang about no regrets. That is interesting but wrong. We ALL have our own regrets but we cannot live in the past. The past is gone and we can only effect the future. Bdizenment is our goal while we are living, not when we are dead. I will toast to that.

We already kill babies in the womb so now let's make killing our spouse or parent's when we deem they are no longer of use to us as they once were. Is this next? Then small children with something wrong with them?? Don't glamorize this and call it love!! Sad!

I'm just happy that with so many getting on in years issues like this are being examined by a filmmaker. Sure beats the heck out of 95% of the pap being served up at the movies these days!
