Welcome to the Voice of Change. Today's LIVING PRINCIPLES are: The Respecting of Our Elders & Living Congruently in Thought, Word & Deed. In some cultures, the elders are greatly respected and have a place in the family as they age. In many others that is not the situation. Homes are created to house elders at all stages of their life. I've heard it said that a culture or society can be evaluated as to how they care for their elders. What do you think would be needed? What needs to happen for them to be cared for? And if we say on one hand, they are important and on the other hand, do nothing, are we living congruently in this area? What has your experience been in this arena? Join the Conversation.
