What happened to showing respect for the older population? Do we care for the elderly in the U.S.?


Something has changed. It seems that every country, except the U.S., has a reverence and respect for the elderly. Other countries care for them, spend time with them, and make sure their health needs are addressed. In the U.S. it appears that we don't seem to have time nor patience regarding the elderly. My greatest pleasures resulted from me stopping to having conversations with older people. Elders sharing everything from their vacation photos, to regrets/joys of life, to life lessons. My life is enriched by my brief time with them. Do you feel the U.S. reveres/honors the elderly?
