August 21st National Senior Citizen’s Day

We are all going to get there someday, hopefully. We will be seniors at one time or another. Today, unlike in years past, that seems to be a bad thing. It’s like life experiences do not matter and the knowledge gained over those years means little. Well, it simply isn’t true, we should honor our seniors for what they do know, and what they have experience in, particularly because, we already know, that history often repeats itself. Today was created by President Ronald Reagan in 1988, a senior himself, as proclamation #5847. Let seniors still find a vital role in your life, and the life of the country, they have earned that right even if it’s just because they have lived as long as they have lived.

How to celebrate – Take a Senior to lunch. Listen closely to the stories seniors tell. Help create a timeline for a seniors life with highlights and goals attained.
