Aging in America: Maxine’s Death

Good photography captures more than just a great picture, it also brings out the feelings and emotions in a situation. This is an excerpt from the PBS documentary “Aging in America: The Years Ahead,” which explores what it means to grow old in today’s contemporary society. The quality isn’t perfect but the pictures are incredibly powerful. Death is a somber experience and this short clip displays some emotional images of two partners being separated by death after 70 years of marriage.

I highly recommend passing this on and then taking the time to sit down and watch the hour long documentary which has won numerous awards. Check out the trailer here.
