I get your point, Elle, but I would strenuously argue the use of the word “logic”. There is none when the only logical reasoning is to accept that aging is normal, natural, and one of the most commonplace parts of life.

What’s utterly illogical, if I may, is that we have wholesale drunk the Koolaid that aging is a disease. I know we agree on this, I’m just calling out the word. For there is nothing logical about allowing those who have much to gain by our fear of the aging process to ruin our lives. And we do.
