Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all we have done, and do not blame others. BUT, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior 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 the family;
The learning out of education;
The service out of Patriotism;
The religion out of school;
The Golden Rule from rulers;
The Nativity Scene out of cities;
The civility out of behavior;
The refinement out of language;
The dedication out or employment;
The prudence out of spending, or
The ambition out of achievement.
And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others!!
Does anyone under the age of 50 know the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner? Just look at those old folks with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand at attention with their hand over their hearts! And, unless many of our younger generation learn to count, in the absence of computers and calculators, they will be back to counting on fingers and toes!
Remember..... Inside every older person is a young person wondering what in the world happened!!
