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.

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 whoe liminated patience and tolerancefrom 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.


Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand at attention with their hand over their hearts!

YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN!

I'm the life of the party..... Even if it lasts until 8 p.m.

I'm very good at opening childproof caps..... With a hammer.

I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.

I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.

I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.

I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.

I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life!
