Eric's Heroes: A daycare where the oldest, and youngest mix

SEATTLE -- Sooner or later, all of us learn about getting old. About the changes that happen to a human being along the way.

The question is, why don't we learn about it sooner? Why are we sometimes afraid of something that is as natural as breathing?

In West Seattle there is a very special children's daycare.

Amazingly, it is located inside the Providence Mount St. Vincent senior living facility, and the setup is sheer genius.

Very young people are surrounded every day by very old people. And both are better because of it.
