Ethel Castellano lives in Arima, a community in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. She is without doubt a truly incredible person.
A mother of 13 children (10 still alive), Ethel lost her “husband” 40 years ago. I wrote “husband” because Ethel firmly believe that love goes deeper than just a wedding ring.
Ethel is 99 years old, and you can tell in her interview with a Trinidadian TV, C News Live that she is letting her age prevent her from enjoying life to the fullest. During the interview, Ethel demonstrated a couple of dance moves. Here is segment from the recent interview.[embedplusvideo height=”367″ width=”450″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/2hDXiPn” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/ARznbTKRfLU?fs=1&vq=hd720″ vars=”ytid=ARznbTKRfLU&width=450&height=367&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=1&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=¬es=” id=”ep4655″ /]
It’s simply impossible not to be overwhelmed with admiration for this inspirational lady. I sincerely hope she stays in good health, has a wonderful life, and achieves everything she’s set out to do. And come January 1, 2017, I definitely will try to remember to celebrate her 100th birthday.
