Week 5 Discussion Reaction

I just wanted to briefly comment on last week's discussion...
I thought it was really interesting to hear everyone's views on the older generation. I thought that a very good point was brought up that our society focuses on the younger generation to come up with new and better things. I couldn't agree more.
It also fascinates me how the United States is so different from other countries in regard to their elders. You don't see a whole lot of nursing homes in Europe. They don't understand why we lock away our older and wiser generation.
I think it might be interesting to really figure out why this is; and where did we start going wrong?
