This thesis reflects upon what elders have experienced in their lives. When looking at the past, the entire account of events which transpired is rarely, accurately portrayed. Since it is not possible to experience all events personally, knowledge is limited to individual studies and assessments. Elders share their insight and intimate understanding about their experiences. "Visiting" with the past gives a unique comprehension of it, finding a unique identity, and provides valuable perspective navigating into the future.
