20. Learn from your Elders
The holiday season is a time for families to get together. Listen intently to your elders so you can learn from their experiences and appreciate them more.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Max Ehrmann, Desiderata, Copyright 1952.
Older people should be respected as they have accumulated special skills from a lifetime of experience!
