Our blessed elders certainly deserve our respect. As someone who has seen firsthand how older people can enrich the lives of younger folks, I believe that respecting elders should be high on the list of what we should teach.
I assumed everyone learned the same thing from his or her parents and grandparents, but apparently I was mistaken. Take for example this moment an elderly father shared with his son. I hope that it serves a lesson that we should always use the Golden Rule when we are with elders.
To care for those who once care for us is one of the highest honors. Please SHARE if you agree!
