You shall stand up before the gray head and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the Lord; Leviticus 19:32.  Many in America and other Western nations practically worship being young.  In the African culture we respect our elders. We value our elders greatly because they are a source of wisdom and experience, like a reference book. If we are stuck, we consult our elders. As they say in Greek, experience is a good teacher. Allanie Njateni, Malawi

Are we neglecting our elderly? What price will we pay for neglecting and disrepecting our elders? Beside are all elderly good examples to follow? Please join host Antoinette Harrell and her special guest Dr. Okpara Nosakhere for this discussion.
