Cristinita is one of those grandmothers who ages with art. Neighbors know her because  every Monday morning she sings while washes her clothes. .
Old songs are listened to from her balcony and her joy is enjoyed by both neighbors and passersby, who have to turn their gaze to look at this woman who knows how to grow old.
I admire people who can take the years with the joy of early youth, because they’re always out there looking for something to do because they prefer to ignore the indispositions of old age.
Many of them leave the bag of going to store aside and prefer to attend to the senior citizen centers, study at the University for Older adult or plan to visit unknown places. 
However, there are old adults that prefer to sit in rocking chair to expect that life crushes them and a change would be pleasing not only of those gray hair people but also from each member of the family because remember that  “death comes not with old age but with forgetting.”
According to specialists in 2025 one of four Cubans will be over 60 years, however, statistics show that persons in this age keep working.
So that whether by habit or idiosyncrasy of young nation, our country is an island of noble and cool sentiments, so we must assume old age with dignity and vigor of our youth. 
We must try to make grandparents feel useful,  integrate them to culture, education, sports and other spaces where the old music makes them revive memorable stages in such a way to restore the confidence that gray hair is not a limiting to continue living.
