The Aged View Their Health and Care 15 am I going to do when I get old? And I live it one day at a time. We do not have a lot of money. We're not as fortunate as some other people. We depend on our Social Security and we each have a small pension. I'm amazed at the way we can live and enjoy our lives! We don't need a lot of money. We have enough to live. I don't worry about my daughter. She's a missionary and she's still got her life ahead of her; she's just 40 years old. They have an organization that she's working for where she's a linguistics expert.

It's wonderful being able to depend on religion. I could be alone if I wanted to, but I don't feel alone. I feel like I'm with somebody who favors me. God has blessed me with my son, and that is my life. I am older than I feel and I've had a good life. It doesn't matter if your skin is white or yellow or black, there will always be a God for you. E. SIEGEL: I was brought up in a Jewish home, in a synagogue. My family had a lasting place in the church. It was important to be Jews and live as if we were Jewish.

I view the church more as a community. It should be based in the community, helping each other, living for the betterment of mankind, because within that community we find strength. I have found that in the Quaker church people are not totally concerned with theology. There's a fellowship and people are there for each other. They believe in God and practice what the fellowship offers: love for all people. In order to develop an unquestioning faith, you'd have to ignore the more practical side of living, that is, reality.
