“Wisdom is with the aged,
and understanding in length of days.”
I greatly admire the cultures of Japan, China and many other countries who hold their their elderly in a place of honor. People who are older are wiser, and I think they should have a special place in society. In America today, the elderly are thought of as old, frail and slow. Many people feel that they are just in the way. They drive too slowly on the roads, and most of the time the younger generations aren’t patient. I understand that older people would be slower driving, but I think people need to take that into consideration. I, myself am guilty of getting upset with slow elderly drivers too, but I think we all need to slow down a little bit. Everyone always has the me-me-me-now-now-now attitude. Some of the Asian cultures have the right idea as far as the elderly go. The older generations are wiser than us, and we should respect them and listen to them!
