    I repsect my elders because they deserved it.

    Many of them wintessed so many things and have a lot of expericene and also did a lot when they were young. That is why many of them are smarter then the younger people. For that they deserved repsect exspecially now they are old and weaker but still have so much knowledge.

    Very Much

    They've been there, done that. I haven't. End of story, right? But really, I am shocked when I hear someone my age being rude to a parent, or a friend's parent. It just seems horrible to disrespect someone who is older than me, or my friends.

    I Respect !

    Older People Deserve Respect

    I believe my elders deserve respect as they to me have built the foundations of the country in the sense that they have lived longer than me and have earned the right to be treated decently and very well. I have a lot of respect for them as i always get on so well with older...

    It's Part Of Basic Manners

    At least I think that it should be part of your basic manners, respecting your elders is without a doubt something that everyone should practice. Without them we wouldn't be where we are today, they've sacrificed so much for us and they do deserve their respect. It's from our...

    It Depends On The Elder

    I don't believe in respecting someone mainly because they're my elder. I know some elders who are just nasty and rude. But I do know some elders who are friendly, nice and pleasant. I only respect the latter. Respect is earned.

    For the most part, yes.  However, I no longer assume that people older than me are worthy of respect simply due to their age.  I have a coworker who is 70 if she's a day.  She NEEDS to hurry up and DIE already or retire.  She's cranky, has the thickest...

    Americans Should Respect Their Elders More
