Do we ever truly stop to see what we are doing, what we are building, what we are destroying?
Has anyone asked why we push the elders of our race into homes where they are forgotten and lost? Where is the logic in ignoring the wisest among us when our world is filled with so many questions that we have not been able to answer?
Consider that within those we have ignored are men who fought a war and learned not only how to fight it, but how to win it. Further consider a generation that learned the battle ground for freedom is lost without the support and faith of an entire nation and then consider that within those people we have pushed aside is the true experience of economic depression, poverty and hunger and the dark toll it takes on every human life.
These problems are realities that we as a nation face everyday and if we are to survive and even be successful in what lies ahead, we must utilize the gift of wisdom given to us before it is taken away. We must stop and see what we are doing, what we are building, what we could be saving.
