PBS stations across the country will be airing Lives Well Lived, throughout September. Viewers will enjoy the insights of dozens of fascinating individuals – 3,000 years of life experience – distilled into a delightful mosaic of essential life lessons.We might say we honor our elders, but we are often separated from them and deprived of their experience and wisdom. And they all have a story to tell...
