Personal Learning network 14

Ever heard the saying, “ Respect your elders.” Or, “ The older the wiser.” In the Nata Village blog, they are honoring those sayings by giving people in the village who are 60+ a day of events. The events included singing, dancing, speeches, and a big great lunch. What if every elderly person could spend one day teaching the rest of us lessons, our world would improve greatly. Most elderly people have lived through some of the most important history that has made what the world is today. Some have seen the Great Depression, and with our economy on the verge of going under, elderly people probably have some great ideas about what to do and what not to do, after all they lived through it. Do you think in our modern world we respect and listen to our elders enough?
