Senior Citizens

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.


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.
