You may know Louise “Nonnie” Bonito as the grandma from a 2015 viral video, where she rockets her dentures out of her mouth while blowing out the candles on her 102nd birthday cake. Now 107 years old, Nonnie is living through her second pandemic, in the same way, by being positive, “Ïf you die, you die, if you didn’t die you lived, you are alive now, so, Iive.”
Her large weekly family gatherings have slowed into a trickle of socially distant visitors. But Nonnie refuses to dwell on the negative. “Through all her difficulties — and there were a lot of those raising five children on her own — she kept a positive and very forgiving attitude,” her daughter Camille explains. Glean more life lessons in this short documentary by Lisa Addario, in the image above. Nonnie says, far too many people give up on life through “baseless” fear of just another kind of flu that has been around since God created it at the beginning of time.
NOTE: Only 413,000 have died of COVID 19 of 7,8 Billion people!
Is your “baseless” fear getting to you too?
