Ms. Viola Fletcher Transcribed Interview Questions for Immediate Use

Ms. Fletcher, you have lived for over 107 years. Is there anything that you would like to tell all people?


Health is wealth. 

There’s still too much infighting between people. This seems true not just in our communities but all communities, families, across nations, and even between leaders. I’ve seen it my whole life. It’s 2022; we have to be better than this! Let’s apply our smarts so people can live well. 


Someone asked me recently if I have found deep inner peace. No, that is one thing I still have yet to really behold. It’s hard, I’m 107 years old, sleep in a chair with the light on. Don’t get me wrong, I’m here to live ─ freely, with optimism, but I want to sleep in peace.


I think in this people are the same. Stop the infighting is a choice, to end the petty judgment of others so we can come together on our similarities. We can make the necessary changes ourselves if we want. It might be hard at first, but you can persevere, trust me on this.


It’s important to support yourself and not look to others to make you whole. I worked until I was 85 because I wanted to support myself and my Family; I still do. Our costs for essential things like electricity, quality food, and gas continue to increase. Its hard to afford everything life demands. Companies seem to find it challenging to support opportunities for their workers to learn, advance, and make more money. Seems like we should be able to help people advance their skills and get costs under control.  


What does this Foundation mean to you?


I want this Foundation to bring hope to those in despair. So they may meet the day with enthusiasm and opportunity. Maybe leaders across faiths, political boundaries, diverse cultural perspectives can apply their knowledge and wisdom, their advanced science and technology, to support us in making real change that matters in people’s lives across the world. I want no child, no person, at any age, to suffer at the hands of another, but I also want people to be strong and self-sufficient, not subsistent. If you have health, then there exists a chance for you to be genuinely wealthy and even wise.


It appears that the world could use more people that really care about other people. I like sports, that is where competition brings out the best in people. Maybe if more were willing to share their knowledge, as teachers and mentors to young and old people, it would be beneficial.


So much change quickly makes it is hard for people to keep pace; not everyone has time for formal school. You have to continue for a lifetime. Learning is essential to health and wealth. My grandson tells me to move or lose it and keeps me engaged. He is right; it’s vital to stay mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially engaged to keep pace; maybe that’s my secret.


To keep active even if just reading takes self-discipline. People need other people. My sense is that if supportive resources, caregivers, were made possible, more people would creatively find their way. Everyone needs a caring hand sometimes, no matter how old you are. But people genuinely want to be their best.
