The older we get the more we understand why there should be a special day to celebrate and appreciate our senior citizens. In many cultures all over the world the elders in the community are revered and respected for their wisdom and life experience. Seniors are also generous and caring. They give more donations to charity than other age groups, and the give of their time as volunteers in community service. Join us in celebrating National Senior Citizens Day by reaching out to a senior friend or relative and ask how they’re doing, or drop by a retirement home during recreation hour and play a card or board game with the residents. Then relax by reading one of the books in our Cocoon Trilogy. The first one was adapted into a popular movie for the big screen.
