In the past, the elder was the symbol of wisdom and was respected by the society.Today, they’re despised and, in some cases, set aside of their own family. The youth must realise that we can’t be forever young and our day will come. Sometimes they can be really annoying, but because they care. Society must look to them as an added value. They experienced so many challenges – labour, war, family, economic crisis, revolutions, diseases… In times of economic crisis, our grandparents are the best counselors. They lived the Second World War, a real crisis with people facing hunger and dying in the battlefield. For the benefit of our society, we must respect the elders and try to learn their lessons. Never forget, our journey starts in the cradle.
