In short , being old was once an honor . Because it was understood that the old ones were the secrets of life and the memories that are the roots of our existence . But now, today , our old ones – out of the situation they have made a lot of money to protect their children and society – find themselves useless and forgotten, waiting and end in nursing homes . Nobody comes respectfully to ask for their wisdom . Nobody cares, not even their own children . Because in today’s world youth it is all that matters . Only youth is honored and respected .
