“The past is the key to our future”. This timeless adage is put into context when one considers the impact senior citizens have on our present, and the influence they will have on the future. Around the globe, they have paved the way for future generations and inspire us in countless ways. They dedicate themselves to our families and communities, support our every endeavor, and are a rock of stability and support. Each senior citizen has had a profound impact on society, and now it is time to give back; to reinforce the love and support they have shown us, and to return it with unparalleled proportion.
Our pillars of support are examples of responsibility and determination. They were tackling major world issues before we could walk, and continue to work tirelessly for programs that benefit every sector of society.
August 21, 2021, International Senior Citizen Day, is an opportunity to show them how much we care and recognize their colossal accomplishments. It gives us a chance to acknowledge their wealth of valuable knowledge, skill, and experience. As society advanced through technology and innovation, they experienced every step of the journey.
In a world often consumed by Social Media and other platforms, they point out the benefits but also acknowledge the drawbacks. These reality checks symbolize their immense wisdom and knowledge, but also their ability of perception and propensity to care.
Celebrate this day with seniors from your community and remind them they are loved and appreciated. One can also volunteer at various retirement homes to make a personal impact on these pioneers of civilization. Just a warm smile can warm a heart. For all that they have accomplished and all they continue to achieve, we owe senior citizens gratitude and heartfelt appreciation.
