Senior Citizens


Senior citizens are constantly being criticized, belittled, and sniped at for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. Upon reflection, I 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 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 civility out of behavior,
  • the refinement out of language,
  • the dedication out of employment,
  • the prudence out of spending,
  • the ambition out of achievement,

and we certainly are not the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from relationships.

“Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD” Leviticus 19:32
