I had to do a little research to determine what is meant by “senior citizen.” Though there is no magic number that makes one a senior citizen, those 60 and above are generally thought to be in this category. Today is the day to honor those “older” members of society.
From the National Day Calendar:
“Their wealth of knowledge, skill, and experience offer so much to the next generation. As technologies advance, these are the people who’ve experienced each step of change. Not only have they contributed to it, but they understand first hand the benefits and the drawbacks. They know life without the advancements that exist today.”
Today, photograph your favorite senior citizen, or a way that your community is helping to honor and care for this particular segment of its population.
