I tried to know my neighbors
I agree with Mr. Shatlan (Get to know neighbors, South Pittsburgh Reporter August 30, 2011) that we better "get to know your neighbor," but some of the younger people moving in don't want to be bothered.
I said "hi" to two different couples that just moved in. Their response: They turned their heads and kept walking.
At age 69 I guess I'm an "elder. My mother used to say, "respect your elders." I guess that doesn't apply in today's world.
