Who do you want as a hero—someone who swims six hours a day so he can swim a half second faster than everyone else, someone who is really good at catching a football, or someone who models living a long, healthy, happy life. I think our society is a little nuts with its hero worship of athletes, rock stars, and movie stars. Yes, they can teach us about focus and perseverance, but who can teach us how to live a good life? For that we need role models who have exceptional spiritual depth and deeds. We also need role models for how to navigate the largely unchartered territory of living well into your hundreds.
Centenarians, people 100 years old and older, are those role models. Lynn Peters Adler is has dedicated to documenting their lives and learning their secrets. She is the author of Centenarians: The Bonus Years and is Director of the National Centenarian Awareness Project. She recently played a key role in the Barbara Walters special, How to Live to be 150. And we have a special treat for you—in the second half of the show we will be talking with a centenarian who may have a richer social life than you do. Here are some photos of our centenarian guest Elsa Hoffmann:
