Ethel Pearson Levine lived to be 101 years old.
During her lifetime she gathered a unique perspective on life’s big issues. She was a mother, grandmother, guidance counselor, and teacher who lived a basic, yet rewarding life, with much to say about how life should be lived.

Don’t you wish you didn’t have to learn life’s lesson the hard way?
Over a period of 30 years, Ethel Pearson Levine wrote monthly articles for the Sunrise Lakes community in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Her articles embrace universal subjects from marriage and divorce to relationships, aging, and death. She took on subjects that affect us all. Within each article, there’s a message, an affirmation, for living a meaningful life. This book is a collection of selected articles from that monthly news booklet.
Although this book is targeted to seniors, it will appeal to readers of all ages.

A student that Ethel Levine had in second grade at PS 128, Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, over 50 years ago had this to say:
“I just finished reading the book. I loved it and found it so inspiring. Your grandmother and my 2nd grade teacher was one very special lady.

I am so thankful that you found me and shared the book with me. I want to wish you lots of success with your book – a ‘must read’ for all seniors.”
