In This Together: 14-Year-Old and 96-Year-Old's Friendship Demonstrates Power of Human Connection
14-year-old Oliver Hollman's friendship with 96-year-old Ted Comet demonstrates the power of human connection. The two got in touch through DOROT, a program dedicated to helping senior citizens maintain social connections. This year, due to the pandemic, the program went virtual, and it didn't stop Oliver and Ted from building a friendship for the ages. 'It's an energizing experience to connect to somebody who's smart, young, idealistic,' says Ted.
