Senior Citizens-4th of July

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary.  We take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.

HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took…………

 The  melody out of music,

The  pride out of appearance,

The  courtesy out of driving,

The  romance out of love,

The  commitment out of marriage,

The  responsibility out of parenthood,

The  togetherness out of the family,

The  learning out of education,

The  service  out of patriotism,

The  Golden Rule from rulers,

The  nativity scene out of cities,

The  civility out of behavior,

The  refinement out of language,

The  dedication out of employment,

The  prudence out of spending,

The  ambition out of achievement or

God out of government and school. 

And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others !

 And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have fought and died for our country.

 YES, I’M A SENIOR CITIZEN!

 I’m the life of the party…..even if it only lasts until 8 p.m.
