Senior Citizens

The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head.
~ Proverbs 21:29 ~

No matter how young, strong, or agile you are right now, if you live a full life, you and the people in your age group will become a generation of senior citizens, and like it or not, it is your destiny.

Who are the seniors citizens of today? Most are pre-baby boomers and some older babyboomers who are approaching retirement age. The first of the babyboomer generation is beginning to fall into the senior citizen category.

All you have to do is take a look around and you will see them everywhere. They may be your mother or father, grandmother or grandfather, an auntie or an uncle, a neighbor, the lady you see walking in your neighborhood every morning, or the guy who waves to you on your way home from work. Seniors citizens are all around us and there are millions of them.

  • Usually, when people reach the age of 65, they are automatically called senior citizens, but with the life expectancy rate getting higher and with more people living longer, the age limit for senior citizens may have to increase by a few years.

Older generations are the backbones of every society. Just like you, they lived for the moment, never thinking that time would pass them by so fast and they would become the senior citizens. One day they looked up and realized that they were not as young and spry as they used to be, yet, they still look forward to tomorrow. They have aged gracefully and without a doubt, they are still as important to us as they were when they were young.

Most senior citizens worked hard most of their lives, managed through the ups and downs of economic uncertainty, fought and lived through wars, tirelessly raised their families, and tried to make the world a better place for themselves, their families, and for future generations.

They are our mentors. They are our the ones who have learned from years of experience that life takes it's time, yet, it doesn't wait on anyone. Although time changes everything, change does not always come over night, but when it does come, you have to be ready for it.

Senior citizens have paved many roads for younger generations to follow, although when you are young, you want to make your own path. But that's okay because the road seniors created was built to last and when you decide to go in the right direction, the road is still there for you follow.

Seniors are a great resource. You may think you know more than they do, but you don't. They can offer you some of the greatest advice you will ever need. They can show you how to get from point A to point B without going all the way around the world to get there.

You can't always see the great sacrifices that your elders have made for you, but as you grow older and become wiser in years, you will start understanding that the lifestyles we all live today was made possible by others who are now our valued senior citizens.
