Old School against New School When I was reading the Ethics poem in my Lit book in made me think It starts off by stating the question If there was a fire in a museum and you hade to pick between a rare expensive original painting and an elderly woman who has only a couple of years left in here which one would you save When you ask me that question my first answer was the painting because the woman is old and about to go Then I got to thinking about what I have said in the class room That made me feel awful that I would save a material item over a human life form This how Americas youth mentality is toward the elderly We feel that old people are worthless after a period of time We also are very materialistic now I do not know why I seem like people are judge by what they ride in or what kind of job they have Which is wrong but it is the American way Dont get me wrong almost all old folks have the bad impression of all youth They think all youth are lazy worthless and do all the drugs under the sun Really that is just a small portion of Generation Y We less caring about what goes on all we want are the television or the Playstation 2 It is different for the elderly to get use to us as we can get use to them but we all are going to be here so we minds well learn to live with each other Back to the poem it made wonder what if the tables were turned and I was old I know I would want someone to save me instead of a painting I wonder how I would feel about the youth when I am the elderly Will I think they are worthless and lazy
