History repeats itself

Where have we gone wrong?

I’ll let you in on a little secret: We are dummies when we refuse to follow in our elders’ shoes.

God, how many times have you wished you could turn back the clock?

We continue to be disrespectful to them in thinking we know best. Did we? No, we did not!

How could our parents possibly understand what we young ones feel? Are they right most of the time? Yep, they are. We think we know everything. No we don’t.

Have you ever heard the saying history repeats itself? Well, our senior citizens have gone through a lot and learned a lot. If only we could tap into the knowledge they have, what wonders could happen to us?

Look with better eyes, people. Sit down with an elder and just start asking questions. You might just learn something.
