Shooter's Comments: I think people who have lived at least 100 years have the most interesting stories to tell. I interviewed a few of the 11 people who are at least 100 or will turn a 100 this year at Lutheran Life Village's centenarian celebration. The difficult part of working on this video was editing down so it wasn't too long. As you can imagine, the many stories made it hard to choose.
