Should we always have respect for elders? Even if their not our parents or related to us?
Is there anything that would make you not want to respect an elder?
(how much older does someone have to be to be an "elder" anyways? lol).
I've done nursing home social work and have come to the philosophy of unconditional respect for elders (even if an individual is not very nice, I still show them respect). After all of these respect question, I'm wondering how others feel?

I consider my elders to be anyone of a higher generation. At my age that means senior citizens. Personally I love old people. There are some who are cantankerous old buggers but most of the ones I meet are so sweet that I just want to hug the stuffing out of them. As a child I had a lot of contact with seniors, between my grandparents and my two elder spinster aunts. I loved listening to their stories about growing up. It was like listening to a living history book lol. Having said all that if they are grumpy and miserable then they won't get a lot of respect from me.
