While I was on the bus, I witnessed an act of kindness towards a senior citizen and it reminded me of a conversation I had with my father (Daddy). He was talking about respect for elders and how Nigeria and Africa in general address the need to respect elders and have all these rules about respect. Yet they don't provide for them when they need it the most. They are so quick to condemn the western world and conclude that they lack respect and decorum. It is these same people that we see taking care of their senior citizens, providing for them, getting up on the bus for them to sit down, running errands for them, etc. If thats not respect I don't know what is!
