Is what we have become
To our “busy” neighbors
Respect for the elders
Has become an “antique” concept
That non of of our generation
Care to learn
The head of the “home”
Has become whoever;
Mother, father, child at times non!
That our fore fathers blessed
For the daily bread is being
Who are we?
Where are we?
Where are we heading?
What now? if we keep this up
I hope you ask yourself the same!

Yes! I have just been bemoaning the lack of respect for elders from our grandchildren. Although we grew up respecting our parents and grandparents, and our children grew up respecting them, not so with this next generation. It is discouraging! I love the term you use for neighbors — nameless beings. Yeah we are too quick to jump in our car and go, instead of stopping to talk to our neighbor. I do it too. I will try to stop and at least say “Hi”.
That’s one of the many things in today’s world that breaks my heart. I think it’s very sad for a young one to unapologetically disrespect an “elderly”.

I really don’t know where we’re going! Wish I did!
Me too; I wish I knew. It’s just a broken world all together but God remains faithful.
